London, Mar 21 (ANI): Eight out of ten British kids are addicted to their mobile phones, a new survey has found.

According to www.youngpoll.com , one in three children feel alone without the phone and almost half sleep next to it.

Children spend nearly six hours on mobiles a day talking, texting and playing music or games, the study found.

The survey also found that kids send as many as 19 texts and make eight calls a day.

It is tricky to get the right balance and make sure phones are not too much of a distraction, The Sun quoted a spokesman for www.youngpoll.com, as saying. (ANI)
