Tim Loughton, MP for East Worthing and Shoreham and former Parliamentary Under Secretary for Children and Families, has become an Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) champion.

This means he will support the work of the IWF and its fight against child sexual abuse images and videos on the internet.

The IWF is the UK internet hotline for the public to report child sexual abuse content, criminally obscene adult content and non-photographic images of child sexual abuse in a secure and confidential way. It works in partnership with the online industry, law enforcement, government, and international partners to minimise the availability of this content. Its work is globally considered as one of the best examples in its field.

Susie Hargreaves, CEO of the IWF, said: “We are absolutely delighted with the support we receive from our IWF Champions and it shows their commitment to our goal of eliminating child sexual abuse content on the internet.”

Reports to the IWF can be made on its website at www.iwf.org.uk
