A SINGER who appeared on TV talent show The Voice has given advice to students about the dangers of cyber-bullying.

The topic has been the centre of a leading storylines in TV soaps Emmerdale and EastEnders with children’s groups also warning about the rise of the high-tech abuse.

Now Clacton Coastal Academy has held a special workshop on cyber-bullying and discrimination, where students were reminded how to use social media safely and responsibly.

Guest of honour was actress and singer Yinka Williams who appeared on The Voice.

Yinka, 23, was in series three of The Voice in 2014 but failed to make it past the blind audition, although judge Kylie Minogue said she was “cute”.

Last year she released dance-pop anthem single Take Charge to rave reviews.

She is now using her talents to tour schools and deliver a positive message and warned the children about cyber-bullying.

She also performed a song for the excited students.

A school spokesman said the event had been a huge success.
