The Government must “take more responsibility” in stopping violent online pornography, the vicar from the town of the murdered teenager Georgia Williams has said.

The Rev Mark Ireland, of All Saints, Wellington, called for a government crackdown on violent, sexually explicit images. “It’s a tragedy we live in a world where this kind of stuff is freely available on the internet,” he said. “That has huge implications for children and young people. There is far more that could be done to make this stuff not available.”

Last Thursday Jamie Reynolds, 23, was sentenced to life in prison for Georgia’s murder. At the time of his arrest, Reynolds had 16,800 images and 72 videos of extreme pornography on his computer.
