The young boy’s father couldn’t take his loss lightly and began to be very outspoken about it.

He further believed that there’s a need to close down the internet because there may be more websites out there promoting suicide.
“What can be done immediately to close down Internet sites that prey on vulnerable young people and prosecute the people who take pleasure in helping others take their own lives?” he quizzed.
He added: “We have to accept that in the modern age, people can find like-minded people to discuss even the most difficult problems…those communities are unregulated and causing a huge amount of harm.” We need to be more sensitive around the risks that people like Tom have in society through their ability to find information online that is unchallenged.”
