Internet porn regulation: British government 'suppressed Ofcom report'

Ministers have been accused of failing to crack down on pornographic websites that can easily be viewed by children.
The claim came just days after the children's minister, Sarah Teather, unveiled the Bailey review into the sexualisation of children, which recommended that age ratings be introduced for raunchy pop videos and "vanity covers" be compulsory for so-called lads' mags such as Nuts and Zoo.
It emerged this weekend that the government has not acted on a separate recommendation from the media regulator, Ofcom, which said last year that the law should be changed so that sexually explicit content on video-on-demand websites could not be seen by children.
