BBC Learning Poll finds that more than half of children in the UK (57%) have done something "risky" or anti-social online

Almost two-thirds (62%) told the BBC Learning poll they felt under pressure from others to act in this way.

Activities included sharing unsuitable videos or pictures of themselves or saying nasty things about others and looking at unsuitable websites.

Some 20% said they had put pressure on someone else to act negatively online.

The research was commissioned as part of a new online safety campaign - Be Smart - timed to coincide with Internet Safety Day on 10 February.
