Online pornography age checks for UK web users

UK internet users could soon have to pay for an ID check if they want to watch pornography online at a cost of £4.99 per device.

But Politics Live reporter Elizabeth Glinka said age verification checks, which were due to be introduced a year ago, now look to be further delayed from a later reported introduction date of April 2019.

She said there was now a holding pattern for the legislation that was passed in 2017, with no official date announced yet by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).
