The Internet Watch Foundation (IWF), a not-for-profit organisation set up by the IT industry to monitor obscene images on the web, has reported that less than one per cent of the child pornography on the internet is hosted in the UK.

In its 2005 annual report the IWF found that just 0.4 per cent of obscene images were hosted in the UK. The US topped the list at 40 per cent, with Russia close behind at 27.9 per cent.

"A reduction from 18 per cent to under one per cent in less than a decade, and the removal of such material, is a UK success story," Alun Michael, minister of state for industry and the regions, told

"We have to be clever in fighting this, because legislation can rarely adapt and change quickly enough to catch these criminals."

Michael confirmed that the IWF had been successful in its bid to become a charity, and praised the staff who chose to do such vital work.

He also praised the skills of Amanda Jordan OBE, the incoming chairman of the IWF, saying that she was an enthusiast for getting the job done.
