    Netsafe's seeing a spike in social media abuse towards young people

    Netsafe's seeing a spike in social media abuse towards young people


    The online safety organisation is working with Police to find the culprits of serious threats sent to students at Auckland's Albany Senior High School.

    Principal Claire Amos says other North Shore schools are also involved.

    Netsafe chief executive Martin Cocker says the wider spike in abuse also affects a handful of schools across the country.

    He says the number of sexual assault threats and accusations being published online, is in numbers significantly higher than normal.

    Police say anyone with information should call 105 .
