The Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) marked its 20th Anniversary on
21st October 2016.
At 11.21am on 21 October, 1996 the very first report was made to the newly-formed IWF. It came in by telephone, to a small room in a Victorian town house in Oakington, a village just outside Cambridge.
20 years later:
699,403 reports have been assessed by the IWF's analysts, with,
281,781* of those showing the sexual abuse of children. One report might show one, or thousands of images or videos of sexual abuse
Commendably the IWF has kept its child porn remit and generally steered clear from the censorship of adult porn.
