Police in Derbyshire have prosecuted nearly 70 offenders as part of an on-going crackdown on web-based child abuse in the county.

Early in 2013 the force established a dedicated team of highly-skilled officers to use the latest technology and techniques to target those involved in indecent images of children online, a spokesman said.

Since then, a total of 68 offenders have been prosecuted for indecent images offences, with more than 40 investigations still on-going.
