More than one in ten Irish schoolchildren have been victims of some form of cyber bullying, new research has revealed.

According to Newstalk, a study conducted by the National Anti-Bullying Research and Resource Centre at Dublin City University show that children as young as nine are being exposed to the risk of cyber bullies.

The results will form part of an in-depth review to be published later this year and have been released ahead of Safer Internet Day, and EU-wide initiative, which takes place tomorrow. 

The following short video was released in conjunction with the new figures and aims to educate children on ways to stay safe online.
