An NSPCC spokesman has responded to reports of several Twitter accounts being closed after they were revealed to contain disturbing images of child abuse.
The graphic pictures were apparently made public last night after hacking groups claimed to have broken into private accounts to expose their indecent content, the NSPCC said. The spokesman said today:
Apparently these were pretty disturbing images of child abuse. We understand the authorities in the US are now looking at the accounts.
