Constable: 'Straightforward' to identify men who access indecent images

Lincolnshire Assistant Chief Constable Roger Bannister says he took part in raids on suspected internet paedophiles yesterday.

"It's actually relatively straightforward to indentify men who, through an internet connection - often a laptop or another kind of computer at home, access these kinds of indecent images of children," he says.

"We identify them...and then we arrest the individual."
