Children in schools across Surrey will be shown a short film to warn them against the dangers of online grooming.

The film, Breck’s Last Game, captures the events leading up to the death of a boy killed by Essex computer engineer Lewis Daynes in 2014.

It was launched in Surrey on Monday, September 17 and will be rolled-out in schools across the county and shown to children aged 11-16.

Mr Daynes ran an online server where Breck Bednar, 14, and several of his friends, played online games. It was through this forum that the teenager was groomed.

Over a period of 13 months, Breck was told a web of lies, turned against his friends and family and lured into a flat and murdered.

The film features the real 999 call made to police by Mr Daynes and an appearance from Breck’s mum Lorin LaFave.

Ms LaFave said: “Breck’s story shows how easily grooming can happen. He met the predator through an online friendship group and would have been flattered to have an intelligent, older mentor helping him expand his gaming skills.

“His story shows even regular school boys can make mistakes if they aren’t educated to recognise the signs of grooming and exploitation.”

Deputy Chief Constable Gavin Stephens said: “All young people have an online life, but many do not appreciate the dangers that come with forming online relationships.

“As a police officer, but probably more importantly as a parent, I really hope that this film will promote and provoke us to have conversations at home as well as in the classroom.

“Knowing the right questions to ask as a parent or guardian can go a long way to keeping our children safe.”

The project is the fruit of a collaboration between four police forces – Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Essex and Surrey.

The film has been funded by Leicestershire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Lord Willy Bach with additional contributions from Surrey Police.

Daynes, who was 18 at the time of the offence, was convicted of Breck’s murder and sentenced in 2015 to a minimum of 25 years in prison.
