UK - Users urged to report abuse sites

Web users are being urged to help spot illegal and obscene content online. The Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) is running an awareness campaign to tell web users how to report images of child sexual abuse. The campaign comes in response to IWF research which suggests 77% of people who find illegal content do not know how to report what they have seen. Banner adverts, e-mail messages and information pages are being used to educate people about how to report.
