Dark net child sex abuse images 'epidemic'

Images of child abuse have become "an epidemic" according to one senior police officer in the United States.

He spoke after a BBC investigation found that thousands of paedophiles are operating on the so-called dark net.

The criminals use this hidden network to share indecent images of children, making them very difficult to trace.

Angus Crawford reports from Los Angeles.
