London, Mar 21: 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.
