Adults will be able to view computer-generated child abuse images online because of a loophole in new laws barring under-18s from porn sites, the Government has been warned.Baroness Howe, a former chairman of the Broadcasting Standards Commission, is leading a campaign for ministers to rethink the legislation, which she says “leaves the door wide open” for adults to view online violent porn and child abuse images that would be illegal to possess.Writing in today’s Daily Telegraph, she says it is an “extraordinary consequence” of the under-aged crackdown that such “incredibly lifelike computer-generated” child abuse images should be accessible online to adults.This is because only “extreme porn” is explicitly banned to over-18s in the Digital Economy Act, which introduces new age verification checks for porn sites. Anything computer-generated or violent, including sexual violence against women, that would normally be banned from R18 videos would be exempt for viewers online under the Act as long as they had passed the new 18-plus age verification checks, says Baroness Howe.It might not even stop children viewing the material. The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC), which will police age verification for porn sites, has warned some “tech savvy” teenagers are likely to find ways around them.

A ComRes poll for the charity Care showed 71 per cent of MPs and 76 per cent of women MPs from all parties opposed making non-photographic child sex abuse images available online to adults. Only 5 per cent of the 155 MPs surveyed disagreed. However, Care spokesman James Mildred said: “If this kind of material is still allowed on the internet, what’s to stop children and young people from being exposed to it as well?”The Telegraph is campaigning for a statutory duty of care to be imposed on social media and gaming firms to protect children from online harms such as porn. Baroness Howe is urging MPs to back her private member’s Bill, which would close the loophole by reinstating the Government’s initial ban on such pornographic material.The Government changed its position and introduced amendments restricting access to “extreme porn” and allowing violent porn because it said an Act aimed at barring children from porn websites was not the appropriate vehicle to set thresholds for what adults could watch. It said other bodies would continue to police “illegal” material and it did not want the BBFC “treading on the toes” of authorities doing this. “We have always been clear that what is illegal offline is illegal online. This applies equally in relation to pornography that is already illegal offline, including non-photographic images of child abuse,” said a government spokesman.
