On a mission...Devan Witter.

Young Devan Witter knows all about the effects of bullying after enduring years of physical and verbal abuse at school.

The 16-year-old, from Market Weighton, was called names regularly and beaten up in the playground.

But now Devan is on a mission to help other children who are victims of bullying.

He is launching a campaign called ‘Advice for Teachers’ to help teachers tackle the problem. The campaign is part of the Fixers project, which encourages young people to make a difference to issues they feel strongly about.
