Instagram has announced tighter restrictions on some posts related to diet products and cosmetic surgery.

The social media platform says age restrictions will be applied to some posts on both Instagram and Facebook, while others will be removed.

Concerns have been raised about the impact that diet, detox and cosmetic surgery content can have on young people.

Posts promoting the use of certain weight-loss products or cosmetic procedures, will be hidden from users known to be under 18.
