The NSPCC posters, which will also be written in Welsh and English, will appear in waiting rooms.

The children's charity says the service was set up after a spate of terrorist attacks and the growing problem of extremists targeting children.

We have seen a wave of terrorist attacks in recent weeks and months and both parents and children tell us how frightened they are by what is happening.

The number of calls received by ChildLine only adds to the feelings of fear and sadness that these evil attacks have prompted all over the world.

It is vital that we are able to provide parents with non-judgemental advice on issues ranging from the wider terrorist threat to the dangers of radicalisation.
