Well done to Keith Bristow, head of the National Crime Agency, for stepping up and stating that there are insufficient resources to tackle all the online paedophiles viewing indecent images.
Mr Bristow said it was an “uncomfortable” reality that some of the 50,000 people who accessed indecent images of children each year would not end up in the criminal justice system.
Mr Bristow said the police and NCA needed to focus their efforts on apprehending the most high risk offenders who may go on to sexually abuse children.
But he admitted that this meant some lower risk offenders who only viewed images online would inevitably escape justice.
