    Pop Idol Will Young is to launch the first national domestic violence website for children.

    The singer is backing the project - called The Hideout - which helps children spot if domestic violence is taking place in their own home and offers advice.

    It also aims to help youngsters who have been victims of domestic violence themselves, whether at home or by boyfriends or girlfriends.

    Developed by domestic violence charity Women's Aid, the website has special security features so young people can read it more safely at home.

    There is a "panic button" which instantly switches the computer's web browser to another site - such as the BBC's CBeebies or MTV.com - if youngsters are disturbed while looking at The Hideout.
