A teenager from Soham has joined forces with fellow students to create a mobile phone app to help people stay safe on social media sites.
Joe Dockerill, who attends Cambridge Regional College, designed the cyber safe advice tool as part of a project with Cambridgeshire Police.
The tool, set to become a mobile phone app, gives step by step guides to staying safe on social media sites including Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram.
It is hoped the pioneering initiative will be rolled out to police forces across the UK.
Joe is one of five students on the Higher National Certificate in Policing course have worked closely with the county's force to come up with a range of strategies to make surfing safer.
