Every year the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (Ceop) produces an assessment of child abuse.
Here are some of the findings relating to the UK from the latest report:
- 8,000 reports of indecent images of children being shared in 2012
- 70,000 images and videos shared - a two-fold increase on 2011
- 20,000 daily users of encrypted forums by end of 2013 (not all for child abuse purposes)
- 70% increase in the number of female victims under the age of 10 over three years to December 2012
