Fortnite: the video game taking the world by storm

It’s got kids obsessed, parents tearing their hair out and some schools calling for it to be banned.

Fortnite is the video game of the year. It’s an astonishing success, but sparking lots of debate about gaming addiction, as the NHS opens its first clinic specialising in the condition.

I just don’t understand, I’m regularly told. So I got my own son into the studio with his friends to learn about the attractions and perils of Fortnite.
