A Cornish schoolboy who has suffered years of bullying sets up a website to help other victims.

Oliver Morcom from St Stephens has endured taunts and even been shoved and punched.

The fourteen year old has already posted two videos on youtube.

Oliver says the constant name-calling is making his life a misery: "I think the bullies, I think they think that they're not doing that much harm, but words actually do hurt most of the time. I would try and bottle it up, but then when I got home I would start crying."

Oliver adds he is hoping to help other people who are going through the same thing: "I'm hoping that people that get bullied will group together, and maybe talk about their problems. It makes me feel like I've got more friends because I'm talking I'm talking to people that have the same problems as me."

You can check out Oliver's website here.
