Government to tackle child abuse online

The Government today revealed a series of measures to restrict the freedom currently enjoyed by paedophiles online.

With grooming rife and the “dark net” allowing abusers to hide under a veil of secrecy, the government has enlisted web experts to look for ways to identify those who participate in illegal activity. Requesting explicit images from a child using online or any other methods will be made illegal. Internet companies such as Google and Microsoft will be introducing measures to restrict searches for offensive material and they intend to make reporting suspicious or offensive material easier to do.
