NSPCC warning over child online safety

Parents have been warned about internet safety for their children following a rise in online abuse.

NSPCC Cymru said it received 1,544 related calls in 2014/15 - 400 more than in the previous 12 months.

It added figures obtained show the internet was used by offenders to commit nearly 300 sex crimes against children in Wales last year.

A Net Aware parent's guide is available as an app and keeps them aware of the latest social media sites children use.
