Children 'should have right to delete online content'

By Nina Massey

Children should have the right to delete embarrassing and sometimes incriminating images and information they share online, ministers have urged.

A series of rights for under-18s have been proposed in order to ensure that they are able to remove any unwanted content later in life.

The iRights plan, headed by Baroness Beeban Kidron, wants websites to feature a delete button to enable youngsters to request information be removed.

It also wants children to have the right to know and the right to safety and support.
