MORE THAN 120 children in the same school year as a boy found hanged after leaving a note claiming that he was bullied, are to be questioned by detectives. Staffordshire Police said yesterday that six detectives would be questioning all 124 pupils in Darren Steele's year at de Ferrers High School in Burton-upon-Trent, over the next few days.

Fifteen-year-old Darren was found dead in his bedroom at his home in the town last weekend, sparking accusations yesterday from his mother, Jane Eales, 37, that his tormentors were guilty of "murder".
