Esther Rantzen warning of social media pressure on children

Last year youngsters contacted Childline volunteers in Prestatyn and Cardiff more than 7,500 times.

Founder of the helpline Dame Esther Rantzen said very often children felt pressured by social media.

The television presenter warned families to "be aware" of the issue as she met volunteers, fundraisers and assembly members at the Welsh Assembly on Tuesday.

Dame Rantzen was visiting Cardiff as part of nationwide tour to celebrate the helpline's 30th anniversary.
