THE PRIDE OF BRITAIN AWARDS: SPECIAL AWARD: LIZ CARNELL

SPECIAL AWARD: LIZ CARNELL

THE stars of Harry Potter presented this very special mum (center) with her award last night.

Rupert Grint, who plays Ron Weasley, and Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) recognised Liz for tackling bullying head on when her son became a victim at school – and then helped thousands of other victims. She set up the website Bullying Online to offer advice.

Liz said: “I regard the award not for me personally, but for all of the parents and children we help every year.”

The site was launched in 1999 and is visited by more than 300,000 people a year. Her son was so badly bullied she took legal action against North Yorkshire council and the settlement helped set up the site.

She said: “It doesn’t matter how much time and effort we dedicate to it, it’s worth it.”
