Row over 'spotted' Facebook page at Queen Elizabeth High School Carmarthen
A FACEBOOK page where pupils at a Carmarthen school had posted abusive comments about others appears to have been shut down.
It follows concerns from parents and teachers over cyber-bullying on the web page.
Worried parents contacted Queen Elizabeth High School about the Spotted Queen Elizabeth High School page.
In past months more pages are cropping up on Facebook under the name of 'Spotted'.

There are already several towns across Carmarthenshire with people of all ages airing their views and rumours about individuals.
QE High School sent letters out to parents about the school page which teachers had no control over.
However, since the Journal attempted to contact administrators of the page, it appears to have been deactivated with all comments and a photo of the school and logo removed.
Deputy head teacher Allan Carter said: "Social networking like Facebook has its place but not for this sort of behaviour.
"What is happening is basically a form of bulling on there and as a school we will not stand for that in any way.
"The problems with these pages arise for both teachers and pupils who are named.
"Comments are sent to the administrator of the page and then posted publicly but anonymously, so people have no way of knowing who has said what."
