CHILDREN and young people will be encouraged to stay safe online with the help of a new app.

The 'Kash Dash' game, which has been designed by Staffordshire police and crime commissioner Matthew Ellis, is similar to 'Flappy Bird' and will display onscreen messages about cyber bullying, stranger danger and privacy settings.
