    Computer experts are to track down and block online child abuse images in an attempt to reverse the spread of sites used by paedophile groups, the Government announced today.

    Maria Miller, the Culture Secretary, said analysts would be recruited to uncover and delete illegal pictures rather than waiting for complaints to be made to police.

    The move was agreed at a Whitehall summit between ministers and representatives of major internet companies, including Google, Yahoo! and BT.

    The Internet Watch Foundation, which monitors the internet for unlawful activity, is to receive an extra £1m from the industry to enable it to take a new proactive approach to finding child pornography. At the moment it only acts on complaints.

    Mrs Miller said afterwards: “What we have agreed today is a fundamental change in the way the industry will be working to remove illegal child abuse images that are too readily available online.
