Are you aware of where your children and young teenagers are wandering with Pokemon Go?

Tonight we witnessed a group of children walked along the verge of the A179 in Hartlepool.

They had in hand their mobile phones and were completely unaware of their surrounding or the cars passing at 60MPH.

They walked along the grass verge of the A179 and down to the slip road leading into the A19 none of these areas are designed for pedestrians.

If you are playing Pokemon Go yourself please be mindful of your surroundings.

Police forces across the UK have already released safety advice about playing the game as criminals will look to take advantage of technology to steal devices from those unaware of their surrounding.

There have also been several reports of people becoming injured while playing the game.

One man was even arrested for playing the game while driving.
