Tia Sharp grandmother: PM's web controls won't work

Tia Sharp's grandmother has told Daybreak the Government's push for a crackdown on internet searches will not help stop child abuse.

Christine Bicknell was speaking after the Prime Minister met members of the Sharp family to discuss measures to block illegal content.

Ms Bicknell told the programme seeing images of child abuse online "fed" a habit in paedophiles but was not the cause of them acting out abuse.

She also said was "totally unaware" that her former partner Stuart Hazell, Tia's killer, was accessing depraved images on the internet.
