This research reveals the stories and experiences of vulnerable children from across Britain routinely viewing videos of illegal activity – fights, beatings, stabbings, sexual assaults, “raids”; illegal content including sex acts involving children; and the sale of weapons and drugs online. Some children report seeing this type of content several times a day, every day.
