Analysts are finding 15 times as much child sexual abuse material on the internet as they were 10 years ago, leaving them battling a "tidal wave of criminal material".

The Internet Watch Foundation said its analysts have taken action against 200,000 websites containing child sexual abuse material this year - a record number.

The charity said this number was compared to 153,350 sites in all of 2020, and 13,161 in 2011 - meaning a 1,419% increase in confirmed cases of child sexual abuse content over the past decade.
