A UK government initiative aimed at making the internet safer for young people will target sexting and cyberbullying, as well as online harassment, abuse and rape threats made against women.

Ministers will meet with large technology companies, charities, academics and mental health professionals to identify risks and develop an internet safety strategy.

The work is being led by Culture Secretary Karen Bradley.

And a Green Paper is due in the summer.
