Teenagers urged to be 'fearless'

Teenagers visiting the Strand Shopping Centre today (Saturday) will be given information about keeping themselves and their friends safe.

Crimestoppers has launched a website - fearless.org - which urges young people to be fearless against crime, and particularly reporting it.

As well as games, quizzes and access to 'YouTube', the site also offers education on the kind of criminal activities which might affect youngsters in the Isle of Man.

Issues covered include drugs and alcohol, cybercrime, bullying, theft and vandalism.

Ballakermeen High School will be promoting the fearless.org website, and sixth form pupil Ruari O'Shea says there's much more to it than encouraging people to 'dob' on their mates (play audio file):

Today's launch at the Strand Shopping Centre runs from 9am to 5.30pm.
