Why technology must be the solution to child abuse material online

Mark Bridger spent a significant amount of time on the internet on the day April Jones died. Just after midday, he had browsed his carefully organised collection of child abuse images, child murder victims and photos of local girls.The library of material collected by Bridger illustrates his interests, mindset and the context to his behaviour, said prosecution Elwen Evans QC. The list of search terms and material found on Bridger’s computer and mobile phone make for grim reading: victims of child murders, photos and cartoons of very young girls to early teens being abused. Other pictures were of local girls and friends of his own children, seemingly innocent pictures taken from Facebook. Bridger’s web search terms included “ten year old girl naked” and “naked young five-year-old girls”.
