    The amount of time children spend on devices has little effect on how long they sleep, a study from Oxford University suggests.

    It runs counter to previous research that suggested excessive screen time was linked to children failing to get sufficient rest.

    The survey concluded that the relationship between sleep and screen use in children was "extremely modest".

    But one UK GP said the findings did not tally with his clinical experience.
