Massive increase in web pages of child abuse being identified and removed from the internet

23 January 2019 – Sky News

Campaigners are calling on tech companies to do much more to stop images of abuse being posted in the first place.

Over 100,000 web pages of children being abused were removed from the internet last year – a third more than in 2017.

The Internet Watch Foundation (IWF), which says its vision is to “eliminate child sexual abuse imagery online“, looks into reports made by members of the public who have stumbled across images they think might be illegal as well as proactively searches for offending sites.
