A poster aimed at raising awareness of child abuse, which was designed by Bristol teenagers, has gone on display in phone boxes in the city.

The posters were made by students from City Academy to encourage children to seek help if they are victims of abuse.

It is part of a scheme by youth education charity Envision, which supports young people to take action on issues they feel strongly about.

The students have also given artwork and toys to child protection offices.

Justin Ballantine, from advertising agency ThirtyThree which helped produce the posters, said: "The ideas, enthusiasm and commitment of the young people from City Academy blew us away.

"They came to us with a clear vision of what they wanted to achieve."

The child protection unit at Lockleaze Police station has been supplied with toys, books and artwork as part of the project.
