THE Duke of Cambridge is expected to write to the family of 14-year-old Molly Russell, who took her own life after viewing disturbing material online.
Molly saw content on social media linked to self-harm and suicide before her death in November 2017 in Harrow, North West London.

The duke has previously spoken out about social media companies and their responsibilities to stop the spread of harmful material online.
In a speech at BBC Broadcasting House in London in November, he accused tech giants of “being on the back foot” when tackling issues such as cyber bullying, fake news and hate speech.

“They are so proud of what they have built that they cannot hear the growing concern from their users.”
Earlier this month, a pre-inquest review hearing heard police were confident they could access Molly’s electronic devices to view the data.
