A global investigation into internet child abuse has led to 50 arrests in Britain with dozens more expected, police said yesterday.
More than a third of the 360 suspects identified so far in an inquiry into an online paedophile forum live in Britain. Investigators believe that they will locate thousands more subscribers around the world.
The most recent arrest warrant in the inquiry, codenamed Operation Elm, was executed by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Winnipeg last week.
