A documentary looking at the murder of Molly McLaren is being aired tonight.

The episode is part of a series telling the stories of several young women who were killed by their ex-partners who stalked them.

Co-founder of The Molly McLaren Foundation and the 23-year-old's best friend, Amy Lee, took part in the documentary on behalf of the McLaren family.

She said: "We decided to take part in the documentary in the hope that we could raise better awareness of cyber stalking and to highlight the dangers associated with it.

"With the rapid growth of technology there are some serious legislation changes that are needed to keep people safe and we hope that by highlighting those very dangers, that we can encourage more people to support them."

After her death, Amy set up the foundation with Molly's parents, Jo and Doug, her brother Tom and family friend Theo.
