A spokesperson for the committee said: “All of us can keep Scotland's children safe from harm, neglect or abuse, even during the COVID-19 crisis. We urge everyone to keep their eyes and ears open for children and vulnerable adults who may be at risk during this time.

“Most children within our communities will grow up in a safe and loving environment. However, some children need help to make sure that they are kept safe.

“The best way to make sure the child you're worried about gets the help they need quickly is to contact us. If you see something, are told something or something doesn't feel right you need to report it.
