That is far more than other nine countries surveyed including the US, Japan and Germany, according to the study.

British youngsters are also the second most at risk of cyber- bullying, with one in five saying they had experienced aggressive or unpleasant behaviour online, the survey revealed.

This was second only to Spain, where 25 per cent of children had experienced some form of cyber-bullying.
