Child abuse victims ‘younger and more severely assaulted’

ImageAbuse online is getting worse, MPs were told (Picture: File)

Victims of child sex attacks posted online are getting younger and the abuse is getting worse, MPs have been told.

Four-fifths of indecent images on the internet show children aged ten and under being assaulted, while half of all material showed the most serious levels of abuse, including rape.

Peter Davies, director of the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre, told MPs on Tuesday: ‘Regrettably, there are more images now than when you started sitting this morning.

‘We check trends in images and our experience recently is that victims appear to be getting younger and the level of abuse is getting worse.’

CEOP estimates 50,000 Britons may possess indecent images of children.
