Sturgeon responded by backing our campaign, which calls for more resources for youths in communities and demands social media giants take action to remove video clips showing violent attacks on children.Our Kids, Our Future also asks everyone in Scotland to play their part by reporting damaging content online to safeguard kids from further harassment.Addressing the question, Sturgeon said: "We all have responsibility.

The Daily Record campaign is very clear about it and I applaud its campaign. I am very clear that bullying and harassment anywhere, particularly in schools, is completely unacceptable.

We should have a zero-tolerance to it."The Cabinet Secretary and I are committed to further work to address this. Last week, Education Scotland published a report that we commissioned on the recording and monitoring of bullying in schools."We have since announced and commenced a review of the anti-bullying guidance.
