Police have arrested 11 men today in connection with Internet kiddie porn as part of country-wide raid on 27 addresses. Computer equipment and CD-ROMs were confiscated as part of Operation Queensland. The arrests targeted those people who possess and distribute indecent images of children. Those arrested are not thought to be connected or part of a paedophile ring. A spokeswoman for Greater Manchester Police said she hoped more would be made later today, but added that not all the results from the raids had been reported to the operation headquarters in Manchester. The arrests were part of a six month undercover investigation by Greater Manchester police. Today's dawn raids were conducted by 20 police forces in England, Scotland and Wales. Last month one-time glam rock star, Gary Glitter, was jailed for Internet-related kiddie porn offences. ® Full Coverage/Child pornograhy
