Cyber related sex crimes against children in our region have increased by more than a 100 percent over the last four years.
Research by the NSPCC has shown that almost 1500 incidents took place in the last year alone.
The charity wants the Government to do more to help them combat the issue.

According to the figures, 13 was the most common age of victims where ages were recorded, while 185 offences were committed against children aged 10 and under, the NSPCC said.
