Nearly one child a week received counselling about sexual abuse at a national charity’s Aberdeen base last year.

New figures released by ChildLine show that more than one in 10 youngsters who contact the charity because they have been sexually abused, or fear they will be, are of primary school age.

The shocking statistics also reveal that 50 children aged 11 or under had counselling sessions about sexual abuse at the charity’s Aberdeen base between April 2012 and March 2013.
