    I’m 16 and live in England I met a guy online through a friend he’s 18/19 and we spoke frequently and I fell for him he asked me to send him pics nd videos nd stupidly enough I did. I realised he didn’t care about me so I cut him off but I’m in a relationship with someone else and this guy is threatening to send to send everything to all my friends and family. I can’t tell my parents because they will kill me. He has already sent it into a group chat on snapchat and him and his friend says they won’t stop there

    Did you get in a relationship before or after you were speaking to him?

    If you want to go extreme, tell the police, because technically speaking, its illegal.

    Yes you can. Just explain to the Police that you don't want your parents to find out. Things are very rarely fully deleted, so there may be ways to retrieve them. To prepare, see whether you can prepare a list of:
    - Messages sent
    - Date
    - Approximate time
    - From who to who
    - Content of the message
    Just do your best if you don't have all the detail, but only you know what he has said, what threats were made, and what you have sent to him.
