Young offered help after case involving child images

Children's charity the NSPCC say anyone up to and including the age of 18 who is concerned that they may be viewing or being sent indecent images can call Childline anonymously.

Meanwhile the Lucy Faithful Foundation, a UK charity which runs an anonymous helpline called Stop It Now for anyone concerned about their behaviour towards children, is also encouraging people to get in touch.

Salsac, who it was heard suffered from mental-health issues, committed the offences when he was 17.

Advocate Julian Gollop, defending, stressed to the court that his client did not have any sexual interest towards children and realised now the gravity of his crimes.

Childline is available on 0800 1111 while the Lucy Faithful Foundation's Stop It Now hotline is 0808 1000 900.

Islanders can also report any indecent images they may come across online to the The Internet Watch Foundation, a charity whose goal is to rid the internet of abuse images.
