We have been advised that there is a new app that can be downloaded directly to mobile phones called Pokemon Go. This app works via the phones location service and sends you messages telling you where to ‘find’ a Pokemon. The user then has to physically go to the location to ‘collect’ the Pokemon.
There are concerns that the game could present dangers to younger children and other vulnerable people as there are ways for users to lure other users to certain areas. You may have seen reports of this in the news.
Please can all children playing the game be advised not to go anywhere alone as they may be placing themselves in a vulnerable situation.
Please find attached further advice.
