Victim photo withdrawn

29th October 2004 at 01:00
South Wales police have stopped using a photograph of alleged suicide victim Laura Rhodes in anti-bullying work in schools. The photograph was used once in a Cardiff school and withdrawn after the force spoke to Laura's parents. An inquest has yet to take place into the death of the Neath 13-year-old, who died last month in an apparent suicide pact with a friend. Her parents say she was bullied at her previous school, but police say they are still investigating all the circumstances surrounding her death.
