Government sets up online child safety watchdog

The Government's new online child safety watchdog was all over the news yesterday.

"The Government has established a body to advise it on how it can increase the protection from dangers posed by the internet.

The UK Council for Child Internet Safety (UKCCIS) will police websites containing inappropriate content, write industry codes of practice for publishers and advertise to children about how to stay safe online.

UKCCIS said that it would tell the publishers of sites which accept material from the public for publication how quickly they must take down content once they have been told that it is inappropriate."
