Omegle is a social media site that advertises itself as a place where you can 'chat with random strangers online'.
Omegle is well known to the police for being a site that paedophiles use and has been known to include sexually explicit content.
We have been made aware that there are some young people in our area who are accessing the site. It has no registration or age verification and therefore can be accessed by anyone.
Please see the link below for some more information from the 'Internet Matters' website and please monitor you children and their use of social media!What is Omegle? What parents need to know | Internet Matters
