Blackmail warning from police

Police are warning people to be careful who they share intimate moments with online - after a spate of blackmail cases.

Officers say in the past six months alone, they've investigated six reports of Island residents being blackmailed online through social media.

They say those who've been targeted have received demands for up to £6,000 to withold sensitive information, pictures and videos.

Police say people should be wary of who they befriend online, and avoid passing on any information which might be used against them.

They add if you've been targeted you should never send money to the blackmailer - as it will only lead to more problems.
