Several people have been arrested and around 100 are being questioned following a swoop by eight Scottish police forces and the Scottish Drug Enforcement Agency on suspected paedophiles. Thousands of pounds worth of computer kit for reportedly seized from the home and business premises of suspects.

Operation Falcon targeted individuals whose credit cards were used to pay to access depraved images on a US-based child porn website, The Scotsman reports. The operation followed a tip-off from US authorities.

More than 1,200 Britons have been convicted in a wider crackdown against child pornography since 2002, dubbed "Operation Ore". Operation Ore began after the FBI turned over the details of 7,200 British child porn suspects to UK police. The list contains names, addresses and credit card details of UK subscribers to an American child porn aggregator. Members paid £21 a month to Landslide Productions of Texas, for access to 300 child porn sites. Around 250,000 people worldwide had paid to access this material. ®
