But Detective Constable Craig Daddow, of Camborne CID, said ‘We spoke to many pupils and we gathered evidence that there were incidents in which Dagmara was bullied by a group of girls and she was also pushed in a corridor on one occasion.

‘We did not speak to any individuals about the bullying because we do not want to worry them that they are in trouble in a criminal way.’
