Police in the US, UK, Germany and South Korea have taken down a worldwide paedophile ring where sex offenders paid in bitcoin to download hundreds of thousands of vile child abuse images.

More than 250,000 horrific videos, stored on a computer server in South Korea and available through a website called 'Welcome To Video', were sold to paedophiles around the world through the dark web, with more than a million clips downloaded.

The US Department of Justice has now charged South Korean suspect Jong Woo Son, 23, with running the website as police forces around the world move in on those who have been using the site.

So far, 337 suspects have been arrested globally, with 18 investigations in the UK and seven men already convicted.
