THE internet and video phones are causing a boom in child porn, children’s charity Barnardo’s revealed yesterday.
They have unearthed websites advertising children for prostitution — with some rating youngsters on a scale of one to ten.
Many kids were groomed for the vile trade by family members.
Some are also being lured into taking part in live webcam sex shows.
And new 3G video mobiles allow young people to access web sites and other Internet services away from the supervision of their parents or guardians.
Barnardo’s said: “This adds another dimension to the risks to children.”
The group identified 83 children who had been sexually abused via the Internet and mobiles.
