Police have been working with schools in Yorkshire, England to help them remove “inappropriate” cyber bullying content on social networking site Facebook. Some school head-teachers were said to have encountered difficulties in getting the content removed, which was targeted at children and reportedly described as “unpleasant”, “offensive” and “vile”.

According to The York Press, Millthorpe head-teacher Trevor Burton said Facebook would not take down two of the pages which mentioned his school. Other school officials also reportedly had problems, including a delay of several days in removing content after it was reported to the social network.

A spokesman for Facebook said the site was not a “place for bullying and harassment” and that the company had a “real name policy” in addition to links for reporting material.
