A computer clerk who ran an online library of child porn was jailed for two years at the Old Bailey this week. In a four-day period, almost 3,000 people visited the free website of 20-year old Londoner Darren Guest.

He had collected more than 2,000 images, including children having sex with each other and penetrative sex with adults.

Interestingly, Guest's house was raided by Greater Manchester's obscene publications unit after 'routine monitoring of the Internet'.

Guest will be placed on the sex offenders' register for 10 years, after his release from jail. He was only 19 when he was caught.

This week, Northumbrian police conducted mass raids across the North of England, in a child porn investigation. Sixty people, four of them women, were arrested and released on bail. The BBC has the full story. ®
