Dozens of websites are being hacked to host images of child sexual abuse which are being inadvertently viewed by internet users, a charity has warned.

The Internet Watch Foundation said it had received 227 reports of hijacked websites in the last six weeks.

It also said legal pornographic sites had also been attacked to redirect visitors to the illegal material.

The charity’s chief executive Susie Hargreaves told BBC Radio Five Live: “It means for the person whose accidentally stumbled across it, they’re seeing the worst of the worst without any idea of how it actually happened.”
