The website Ask.FM says it will be implementing a number of changes to improve safety.

The site has been under scrutiny following the death of 14 year old Hannah Smith from Leicestershire - who apparently endured months of online bullying.

Ask.FM says reporting and moderation, registration and corporate visibility ae the three core areas it will make changes to.

It's in light of the findings and recommendations of an independent report after Hannah Smith committed suicide earlier this month.

A separate website for parents to find out more about Ask.fm is also to be set-up.

From now on, its website users will have access to a more prominent "report button".

There will also be more staff hired to work as moderators.

For Hannah's father David Smith though it's too little too late - the family, he says have been left devastated by Hannah's death, and he is calling on the government to get tough on cyber-bullying.
