Five arrested in ongoing online child sex probe

[P]olice have arrested five people over the past month in relation to sharing indecent images of children.

Officers from the Digital Media Investigation Unit (DMIU) have attended six addresses, five in north Cumbria and one in west Cumbria, following information regarding online child sex offences. These have led to the arrests of five men aged between 26 and 50. All five have been bailed as the DMIU investigate the 48 digital exhibits that were seized across the six addresses.

Six children have been directly safeguarded as a result of these investigations.

Throughout this week police have been showcasing ways in which they help protect children online and have offered advice on ways to ensure their safety.

Detective Inspector Jenny Beattie said: “This week’s campaign has been a great opportunity to engage with the public of the dangers online. There are people online who are actively looking to groom children and sexually abuse them.

“Everyone can take steps in order to ensure that their child is not a victim of such abuse.

“The DMIU are currently in the process of developing new intelligence and will continue to actively seek out those committing online child sex offences in order to protect children and bring offenders to justice.”

Police and Crime Commissioner Peter McCall said: “The message is simple if you are accessing images or videos that constitute a criminal offence we will find these on whatever device you have them stored or viewed.  I welcome the campaign to highlight the importance of keep our children safe online and would urge all parents and guardians to ensure that they follow the safety steps.”
