A TALK for parents on internet safety is taking place at a school.

The event takes place on Wednesday at Hedingham School, from 6pm to 8pm.

The aim of the event is to bring parents up to date regarding the online applications children are using and the potential for predators to use these to directly target them.

Some of the figures used, which come direct from children, are sure to shock.
