Two of the country's leading experts in online safety will today declare the internet "is not fit for children".

Professors Mary Aiken and Barry O'Sullivan believe the Government's current policy on web usage is placing children's psychological and social well-being at risk.

They will "unequivocally" oppose a recent Cabinet decision to set 'age of consent' for young people to sign up to online sites at 13.

"Evidence is mounting about the harmful effects of social networking sites on the well-being of children, including sleeplessness, obesity, compulsive use, and vulnerability to advertising," they will tell an Oireachtas committee.
