A SURVEY has revealed a rise in the number of under-fives watching TV and using tablets.

Pre-school children watching TV has increased from an average of 2.4 to 2.6 hours per day over the past year, according to a report from Childwise.

The survey of more than 1,000 parents found 73 per cent of under-fives were using a tablet or computer, compared to just 23 per cent in 2012.
