The Constabulary has been notified  of The Blue Whale Challenge.  While there have been no incidents relating to this in Hertfordshire it is an ideal opportunity to educate and prevent.

The Blue Whale Challenge is about targeting vulnerable young persons on line and befriending them.   Once their trust is gained they are set 50 challenges.  These are a variety of challenges that build upon the previous in terms of risk and severity.  The 50thchallenge culminates in a dare to the vulnerable person to kill themselves.

There have been reports of this happening.
