Parents warned over children running up gaming charges

Parents are being advised to change console settings in order to prevent children using their credit cards to buy extra online gaming services.

An 11-year-old from County Antrim ran up charges of over £1000 on his parents' account, spending £448.75 in one day alone.

Computer expert Kevin Curran said parents should set up child accounts to prevent children purchasing any additional gaming extras.
