Cambridgeshire Police have expressed their concerns about the risk to young people through the use of online games such as Minecraft and World of Warcraft:

Please note the following:-

  • The game is utilised as a contact point- the groomers play the game, befriend children and establish a relationship before moving to further contact outside the game
  • Opportunities for children to be groomed is thought to be high
  • Both male and female children are being targeted
