A petition has been launched to support Carolines Law following her tragic death which will request the Government to launch an inquiry into British Press.
Joshua Anthony has launched the campaign which is calling on our Government to launch an inquiry into the British Press and their practices following what is described as ‘maltreatment’ of those within the public eye.
I will not rest until I’m banging on No. 10 with my petition calling upon the Government to launch an inquiry into the British tabloid press following the death of #CarolineFlack. She deserves justice. #LoveIsland #RipCarolineFlack https://t.co/PE3UWVEiog

Joshua says that these people include Caroline Flack, Harry and Megan Markle to name a few.
Joshua says that the headlines, harassment and trail by media has to end and they must be held accountable.
Touching, incredibly sad and gut-wrenchingly true we should stand over people and not look down on them but stand there ready to offer a hand and help people back up. We will be supporting #CarolinesLaw pic.twitter.com/BffeGp7poo

Celebrity Stephanie Davis has released an emotional video about the way in which the media are able to treat people within the public eye and get away with it while having a huge impact on mental health.
She revealed she had been supporting Caroline but was unable to help her in the end in a very emotional issue that vows to take Carolines Law to parliament.
In 2011, the Government launched a public inquiry into the culture, practices and ethics of the British press following the News International phone-hacking scandal, chaired by Lord Justice Leveson.
Almost a decade later and we are still seeing the same issues in the press. We are campaigning for an inquiry into the practices and policies of mainstream media organisations and social media platforms in their efforts to protect members of the public from harm.
If we, the public, show there is demand then our politicians and government will be compelled to act.
