Safety Advice: Pokemon players make sure you read this! 

Notice to all the Pokemon players out there.

As you might be aware ‘Pokemon Go’ has now officially launched in the UK – if you’re already a player, or you’re planning to play, here are a couple of things to keep in mind:

Be careful not to walk around so absorbed in the screen of your phone that you forget to be aware of your surroundings (there are already hashtags and forums online to show off injuries obtained playing the game), and please don’t put yourself at risk of having your phone snatched from you.

We’d also like to ask parents to ensure that children playing the game don’t wander off looking for ‘Pokestops’ or ‘PokeGyms’ etc: please make sure that they (and you!) know where they’re going.
