The NSPCC says more still needs to be done in Jersey to protect children from cyber crime.

The charity has praised the island for its efforts to tackle the issue, but says there is still a worrying trend for children sending explicit messages from their phones - known as "sexting".

The local Prison Me No Way campaign has been giving special lessons in schools, highlighting the dangers of the internet and promoting cyber safety.

They don't always realise that it's not such a healthy relationship to show pictures that perhaps they wouldn't normally want to show their mum or their dad, or wouldn't want to have pinned on the school notice board.
