Important message from Mr Brady - 9/9/2020

Please be aware of a video circulating on Tik Tok and other platforms....

Dear Parents/Carers

Gloucestershire Police are aware of a video circulating on TikTok and other platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat which shows a male taking his own life. For parents’ awareness, the still of this video is an image of a male with a beard, sat at a desk. Whilst social media platforms have removed the original video, it has been widely re-shared and some users are embedding the video within others to trick other users into watching it.

We would like to remind parents that most social media apps, including Snapchat, Instagram and TikTok, are not suitable for people under the age of 13 due to the nature of some of the content shared on these platforms, including this video. We would also urge individuals to report any harmful content they come across on social media to the provider.

It might be a good time to sit down with your daughter/son to talk through their online habits and check that they have not been affected by this. 

Please do get in touch with us if you need support in this matter.

Many thanks

Steve Brady
