    More than 90,000 primary school children, some as young as four, have been shown how to spot the signs of abuse during assemblies held by the NSPCC in Kent and Sussex.

    It comes as reports of child sexual abuse to police forces continue to rise.

    Specially trained staff and volunteers have taught the 'Speak Out Stay Safe' programme in more than 300 schools across the region - helping children understand abuse in all its forms and the dangers of using social media.
