  • Two children in Spain have been admitted to a mental health institution to be treated for addiction to their mobile phones, Spanish media report.

    The children, aged 12 and 13, were sent to the clinic by their parents, who said they could not carry out normal activities without their handsets.

    They were doing badly at school and lying to relatives in order to get money to spend on their phones.

    They have been learning to cope without their phones for three months.

    Dr Maite Utges, who runs the Child and Youth Mental Health Centre in Lleida, near Barcelona in north-eastern Spain, said it was the first time the clinic had treated children who were dependent on their mobile phones. BBC News

    "That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved."
