More teenagers are set to benefit from the advice given by some of their peers in a hard-hitting video about cyber-based online child exploitation.

A group of teenagers from Nottinghamshire County Council’s Outreach Team worked with youth workers to produce a four-minute video which grips the viewer and provides a stark warning about internet safety.

The Girl in the Room with the Box DVD was highly commended as part of the National Crimebeat Awards 2015-16.

You can view the video on council’s YouTube channel: http://notts.cc/GirlinBox

And the council’s Community Safety Committee has helped fund £500 so that the video and education pack can be shared with more schools across the county.
