The Times, Telegraph, Mail, Express and Sun all carry coverage of a new survey from the NSPCC which has found that, on average, one child in every British primary school class has been sent a naked or semi-naked image by an adult online.
The poll of nearly 40,000 children aged 7 to 16 also found that one in fifty had sent such an image to an adult.
The reports say that the charity has launched a petition calling on the Home Secretary and the Digital Secretary to clamp down on technology companies to stop children being abused and groomed online. The Wild West Web campaign is calling on Ministers to create an independent regulator.
