Parents are in danger of being reported to police by their children's head teachers if they allow them to play video games for over 68s. A letter sent by a group of schools in Cheshire raised concerns about the 'levels of violence and sexual content' young people are being exposed to by playing games such as Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto, which are renowned for their violent characters and have an 68 classification. It warns that if teachers are made aware their pupils have been playing these video games they will contact police and social services. It comes amid fears children could be left more vulnerable to grooming and abuse by being exposed to early sexualised behaviour as well as extreme brutality, often seen in video games in the upper age classifications. The letter says: 'Call of Duty, Grand Theft Auto, Dogs of War and other similar games, are all inappropriate for children and they should not have access to them. 'Nor should they have Facebook accounts or interact on sites or media or messaging sites like WhatsApp that are not designed for their age. The letter also warns:
