Tackling the spread of child abuse images

People who download child abuse images pose a risk of committing sex attacks on children, says a specialist police child protection unit.

The Child Exploitation and Online Protection (Ceop) centre wants police to prioritise those caught with such images, who have access to children.

Its report said internet images are becoming more extreme and sadistic.

Hampshire Constabulary's Det Con Claire Gettings explains how police work with Ceop and conduct a raid on suspected distributors of child abuse images.
