December 21, 2000

As the festive season rears its head, a councillor is urging parents to beware buying mobile phones as presents for their children.

Wayne Daley, prospective parliamentary candidate for Blyth Valley, wants parents to consider the effects of mobiles on youngsters' health.

Many reports suggest that extended use of mobile phones by young people aged nine to 17 can have an effect on brain wave activity, and that this may adversely affect their health.
