An anti-bullying campaign drew Forth One radio presenter and former Lasswade High pupil Mark Martin back to his old school on November 15.

Coinciding with national anti-bullying week (November 18-22), the Healthy Respect initiative focussed on raising awareness of cyber bullying and sexting.

Speaking with youngsters at the school, Mark admitted that he was bullied when he was younger because of his ambition to work on the radio.

He said: “People used to have a go at me because I wanted to work on the radio, it was as if they felt threatened by that, just because I had a bit of ambition and determination.”
