“Cheshire Police take the issue of indecent images of children extremely seriously, and we will do everything possible to bring offenders to justice. We have a dedicated Paedophile and Cybercrime Investigation Team who are fully committed to tackling this issue, with specialist officers who are trained to adapt to the constantly changing methods of online criminals. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Behind every indecent image is an abused child and sharing such images online is illegal and results in further abuse. The operation has used the most up-to-date technology and intelligence to identify suspects, and this technology will continue to be used throughout the course of the investigations.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The suspects are now being questioned by specialist officers from the team. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
