A campaign about the importance of internet safety has been backed by police in Lincolnshire.
Schools, businesses and politicians joined Safer Internet Day on Tuesday with the theme of “Let’s create a better internet together”.
Detective Superintendent Dave Wood, director of intelligence for Lincolnshire Police, said “The internet is an amazing source of information, so long as you have the information you need to use it safely.”
The day was also backed by Lincolnshire Police and Crime Commissioner Alan Hardwick who said: “Sadly, the truth is that hardly a day goes by when we don’t hear some story about the dark power of the internet.
“There are huge positives to the internet but there are also some evil people out there with the potential to ruin your life.”
