David Cameron has announced that porn sites that don’t implement a strict over 18s verification system could be forced to shut down entirely by the Government.

The Government has suggested sites ban people through payment providers or other means. If that’s unsuccessful then sites themselves will be banned.

A Government statement said they would make it ‘an offence in the UK to publish pornography online without age verification controls, possibly with a regulator to oversee and enforce controls’.

A consultation will be launched in autumn, where the Government will consult with porn sites to work out the best way to regulate their videos.

Whilst great progress has been made, we remain acutely aware of the risks and dangers that young people face online.

Looks like the days of underage porn watching could be coming to an unhappy ending.
