School warns of TV series Squid Game copycat violence

A SCHOOL advised parents to be vigilant after reports of children copying violence from hit Netflix series Squid Game.

The 15-certificate Korean show mimics children’s games but ends with losing participants being killed.

Maltby Learning Trust said parents should be aware of controls on apps like Tik-Tok and YouTube, which have been used to view the show.
