Norway has launched an initiative to help people who are in danger of being forced into an arranged marriage.

It is in the form of a smartphone app which gives information about what to do and how and where to get help.

Its launch is timed just before the summer holiday when young people in often Asian cultures are sent abroad to be married.

The aim is to try to reach young people on their own terms in social media.
