According to the BBC, there is a “relentless commitment” to track down paedophiles and online child abusers, Home Secretary Theresa May has promised MPs.

Last week, it was revealed that 660 suspected paedophiles had been arrested. Theresa May said she could not comment on reports the National Crime Agency had identified more than 10,000 suspects but told MPs: “Those are operational matters for the National Crime Agency, decisions to be taken with the various police forces that are involved.”

Mrs May insisted that appropriate resources were being made available to police forces, including experts from the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP).

That inquiry was set up recently to look into how historical child abuse cases were dealt with in major public institutions and what lessons can be learned.
