    Internet providers offer parents bar on porn



    Four leading web providers are to offer customers the option to block adult content at the point of subscription, the BBC understands.

    BT, Sky, Talk Talk and Virgin will offer the protection for smart phones, laptops and PCs.

    It comes as David Cameron is set to meet industry representatives amid concern over sexualisation of children.

    The prime minister will also launch Parentport - a website to help parents complain about inappropriate content.

    And he will back a ban on billboards displaying risque images near schools.

    The new measures, aimed at helping parents protect their children from internet porn and other explicit sites, follow a report earlier this year by the Mothers' Union charity.

      Man there was nothing like stumbling on some quality hedge porn back in the day. :)

      I guess the modern day equivalent is pop up adverts on websites. :)

      Sky News is reading a report that 5% of children get their sex-ed from the Internet - think of all those children who can't learn about it properly now. Someone think of the children!
