Warning about Sexting

Recently Schools in Hampshire and Hampshire Police have been warning this week (9th December 2017) about the perils of sending inappropriate images and the possible consequences. This is a topic that we frequently cover in Self Protection classes at the club, but the advice bears repeating online and documenting again.
