Children’s charities and internet service providers in the UK are to meetwith the police and the home secretary to discuss how to fight internet paedophiles. The talks with Home Secretary Jack Straw on Wednesday follow last week’s report by the Internet Crime Forum, which highlighted the need for vigilance over the use of internet chatrooms.

The talks also coincide with the launch of a campaign by the leading children’s charity NCH, which is calling on the government to draw up a strategy to ensure safe internet access for all children.

NCH has published a campaign booklet recommending how the government, child-care professionals and parents can play a role in making computer technology available to all children.
