The Molly Russell Foundation board of trustees said: “The MRF welcomes the verdict of the inquest into the death of Molly Russell. At its heart, this is about online safety. The inquest has demonstrated very clearly the significant dangers social media platforms such as Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest present in the absence of any effective regulation.
“The need for speedy regulation is reflected by recent statistics which indicate four school age children die every week by suicide.
