“No arrests have been made in connection with the incident.

“In the meantime, officers ask people not to speculate on social media, including naming any people believed to be involved, and allow the investigation to take its course.”

The school’s headteacher said: “The school is dealing with an ongoing incident in line with appropriate procedures and the school is therefore unable to comment further.”

In an online guide, North Yorkshire Police said: “The best way to stop yourself from becoming a victim is to be very careful about who you befriend with online, especially if you’re considering sharing anything intimate with them.”
