'Adult' computer games played by Guernsey children

Almost a quarter of Guernsey children are playing adult computer games featuring inappropriate content for their age, a survey has found.

Campaign group Safe and Secure Online surveyed 400 nine to 11-year-olds about their computer game use.

The results showed a worrying trend in an area where children needed greater protection, said group volunteer Matthew Parker.

He said some games showed extremely realistic graphic violence.

Mr Parker said: "The volume of children playing these games is concerning, it is known some adults will use these games to groom children, so to allow children under-age to play these games is concerning."
