He said: "It's very exciting when children get their own laptop or iPad but parents and carers should make sure their children have some general online safety.

"Social networking can be great but you need to think twice before adding someone as a friend, posting any comments or pictures and make sure you know who can see what.
"In a chat room or game, you may feel you can safely talk to strangers but remember they are strangers no matter how many times you meet online.
"It is a big risk to arrange to meet an online friend in the real world."
