Internet providers offer parents bar on porn
BBC Online :
Four leading web providers are to offer customers the option to block adult content at the point of subscription.
BT, Sky, Talk Talk and Virgin will offer the protection for smart phones, laptops and PCs.
It comes as David Cameron is set to meet industry representatives amid concern over sexualisation of children.
The prime minister will also launch Parentport - a website to help parents complain about inappropriate content.
And he will back a ban on billboards displaying risque images near schools.
The new measures, aimed at helping parents protect their children from internet porn and other explicit sites, follow a report earlier this year by the Mothers' Union charity.
Parents will welcome the new controls on pornography although, with children accessing the internet from a variety of devices, including mobiles, it will not entirely solve the problem.
