There has been a fifty percent increase in the number of people from Wales seeking help to stop looking at sexual images of children online.
South Wales Police released the figures after a pan-Wales operation has resulted in an increase in arrests of people looking at sexual images of children online.
Operation NetSafe has involved specialist teams from South Wales Police, Gwent Police, Dyfed-Powys Police and North Wales Police working together to deal with, and reduce, the threat, risk and harm posed by online child sexual exploitation and abuse.
It was run in partnership with child protection charity, The Lucy Faithfull Foundation, the operation has also resulted in an increase in the number of people seeking confidential help from the charity to stop accessing these damaging and illegal images.
Children's charity the NSPCC says the increasing number of people being caught with these images highlights it as a serious problem which must be addressed.
