  Police and pop stars fighting bullying
Updated 23 October 2001, 18.54

London's Metropolitan Police have signed up pop stars like Steps for a new campaign to help beat so-called 'hate crime'.

The advertisements are aimed at 10 to 15-year-olds and will appear on MTV and in magazines like Sugar and Top of the Pops.

Raising awareness

The aim is to raise awareness of people being bullied because their skin is a different colour or they're from a different culture.

Jade from R 'n B group Damage is backing the campaign:

"People need to think for themselves about how they treat other people and not treat them badly just because they look or sound different or because their friends think it's funny."

Need advice?

Maybe you are being bullied yourself? Or maybe you'd like to help someone who is.

If so then check out the Guide to Bullying by going to the link above.
