Watch: Ex-cops teach kids about crime and the law

How much should our children be taught about crime and the law, and at what age?

Former police officers from Greater Manchester are taking their message into schools, to reach pupils as young as nine and ten.

Their aim is not only to inspire the good citizens of the future, but also deliver a warning on how the law might affect them. Victoria Grimes reports from Bolton:


Children as young as 10 victims of revenge porn in North West

Children as young as ten have been victims of so-called 'revenge porn' in the North West.

Exclusive figures obtained by Granada Reports show that since a new law came into effect in 2015, there have been 500 incidents reported to police of people sharing intimate pictures online.

Shockingly, in Greater Manchester alone eight of these children were under the age of thirteen. A further 150 across the region were in their teens.

A former police officer is so worried about the problem of internet safety he has launched a new app to help protect children under thirteen when they are on social media.
