Sexting

SEXTING

Sexting is when an individual sends explicit messages or indecent sexual photos of themselves or others.

NSPCC

The NSPCC warns that the number of reports of indecent images offences made to police forces across the UK has risen from 4,530 in 2013 to 10,818 in 2015. More than 2,000 children were among those reported to police for indecent images offences over the last 3 years. Parents are urged to talk to children about the risks of sharing nude selfies on social media, which could be partly fuelling the rise in offences by children.
