A 16-year-old girl was found dead in the school toilets, after complaining she was being bullied.

A 16-year-old girl was found dead in the school bathroom after earlier complaining she was being bullied.

Poland-born Dagmara Przybysz, who moved to the UK with her family nine years ago, was found hanged in the school toilets last May at the Pool Academy in Cornwall.

According to reports, emergency services were called to the school in Redruth, Cornwall, on a Tuesday afternoon at around 2.15 pm, but were too late. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

In a post on the forum ask.fm written before she died, the young beauty said she was being bullied at school.

When answering a question about what problems the teenager had at school, she said “racism” was her biggest problem, adding that friends were saying things "behind her back", reported MailOnline.

The comments were made three years before she died, but after her death, Dagmara's friends said the bullying had not ceased in that time.

"I cannot understand this. Why? She was such a lovely girl, so full of life," the youngster's grandmother said from her home in Poland. "She was such a beautiful, friendly and helpful person."

At the pre-inquest hearing, Detective Constable Craig Daddow said Dagmara's classmates had confirmed the blonde teenager was being bullied by a group of girls. She was also pushed around a corridor on one occasion, according the Mirror.

In a statement released after her body was found, Pool Academy confirmed the schoolgirl's death with "overwhelming sadness".

"We are deeply shocked and saddened by the loss of Dagmara Przybysz. Dagmara was a beautiful, bright and creative 16-year-old student with a very promising future ahead of her," the statement read.
