Someone you had trusted?In this episode of Pixels from a Crime Scene, we hear how addiction to criminal material tears families apart.

It’s a global industry, and it preys on children. A young girl is online. She makes a friend, and soon they’re chatting, making jokes together and having a good time. But that friend is not who they say they are. Soon, the girl is being terrorized, coerced, bullied, and blackmailed into sending explicit images of herself to the stranger. All from her own bedroom in the family home. And then it gets worse.In this episode of Pixels from a Crime Scene, we talk to Rhiannon, a survivor of child sexual abuse, who was groomed by a predator on the internet when she was just 13.

A young man closes his laptop. He checks his phone. He ties his trainers. He’s on his way out to meet some mates. He is also a sexual predator. He is part of a “new generation” of online abusers, with police warning that more and more 18 to 25 year-old men in the UK are viewing child abuse online and even “directing” the abuse of children. In this episode of Pixels from a Crime Scene, host Angela Young meets Susie Hargreaves OBE, Chief Executive of the IWF, Fred Langford, the IWF’s Deputy Chief Executive and Chief Technical Officer, Simon Bailey, the National Police Chief Councils’ (NPCC) lead on child protection, and John Carr OBE, Internet Safety and Security Consultant. She looks at the realities facing those leading the fight against the criminals who view, share and even trade child sexual abuse imagery online, and confronts us with some uncomfortable truths about the changing face of online abusers. Find out more and donate to the IWF at iwf.org.ukSupport the show (https://www.iwf.org.uk/support-iwf-and-help-make-internet-a-safer-place)
