A teenager hanged himself in his bedroom after he was bullied at school because of his learning difficulties, his devastated friends claimed today.

Friends said tragic Joshua Maddox, 15, killed himself after months of cruel taunts from fellow pupils about his condition which had left him struggling at school.

His distraught family dialled 999 after finding the teens lifeless body at their home in Walsall, West Mids., last Thursday morning.
