Molly Russell inquest opens almost five years after teenager’s death

The Guardian says The inquest into the death of the teenager Molly Russell, who killed herself after viewing graphic content online, opens on Tuesday, with executives at Instagram’s parent company and Pinterest among the witnesses scheduled to appear.

Molly, 14, from Harrow, north-west London, viewed a large amount of online material, including some linked to anxiety, depression, self-harm and suicide, in the months before she died in November 2017. Her father, Ian Russell, has become a prominent campaigner for regulating social media platforms in order to better shield young people from damaging content.

The inquest has been delayed multiple times owing to legal and procedural issues including requests from Instagram’s owner, Meta, to redact content to protect the privacy of users.
