Survey highlights online risk for children

A survey by the NSPCC of nearly 40,000 children and young people (aged 7 to 16) has found that, on average, one child per primary school class has been sent or shown a naked or semi-naked image online from an adult; and one in 50 school children has sent a nude or semi-nude image to an adult. The survey results have highlighted the dangers that children are exposed to online. The NSPCC is calling on government to introduce tougher regulation for social networks.
