Police in Strabane issue warning after young girl approached online

cybercrimePolice in Strabane have issued a warning to parents and teenagers after a local girl was approached online and asked to send revealing photographs.

According to police, the 16-year-old girl was approached by someone who claimed to be a ‘representative’ of a well-known modelling agency.
