PSE - Internet-safety film

19th February 2010 at 00:00

Children as young as five are being targeted by a new campaign aimed at helping them stay safe online.

The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) is unveiling an animated film to teach the UK's youngest about the dangers of the internet, alongside a national education campaign for all age groups.

With some 20 per cent of parents of young children expressing concern about who they are in contact with online, CEOP has developed a cartoon called Lee and Kim's Adventures to introduce five to seven-year-olds to the concepts of personal information and trust. This is being delivered to schoolchildren across the country and will be available for parents to use at home.

According to CEOP, four enquiries every month require an instant response and could relate to a child being in immediate danger of abuse; nearly 80 per cent of children aged five to seven use the internet.
