Internet Watch Foundation release 2011 Annual Report

Posted on 26 March 2012

The IWF’s 2011 Annual Report, released today, has revealed that Child sexual abuse images and videos remain a serious and persistent global online challenge.

However, thanks to the work of the IWF and the online industry, very few child sexual abuse images and videos are hosted in the UK. When content is found to be hosted on UK networks, it is removed typically within 60 minutes thanks to the swift actions of the online industry.

During 2011 the IWF issued 66 takedown notices for child sexual abuse content hosted in the UK.
