In brief Police are questioning 45 suspects over alleged child pornography offences following raids across Greater Manchester (GMP) this morning. Operation Baglan targeted individuals suspected of downloading paedophile images from child abuse websites. A team of 500 police officers conducted raids on 50 homes. Computers were seized and suspects detained for questioning later today.

In a statement, GMP said that suspects were "traced through electronic footprints they have left while accessing images, the majority when visiting websites. The minority have been using software that allows other to access their computer remotely and download images." ®
