ELECTRIC CARS: Calls for more charging points in Hartlepool

ELECTRIC CARS: Calls for more charging points in Hartlepool

 
Is there more that can be done to keep our children safe online?
 
Research conducted by the NSPCC and YouGov indicates that the majority of adults across the North East believe social media giants and tech firms should have a legal responsibility to detect and prevent child abuse, and back strong sanctions against directors whose companies fail. We spoke to Hannah Ruschen from the NSPCC.
 
Within the first three months of lockdown, the NSPCC received over 1000 reports of sexual abuse aimed at children online, highlighting the very real danger some youngsters experience when they log on. Hannah says that she wants to see Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden  listen to these very real concerns, and take the appropriate action by introducing a strong, enforceable duty of care for tech firms.
 
We then discussed what parents and guardians can do in the meantime to feel confident that their children stay safe online and know to speak up if they are exposed to harmful imagery or abuse.
