Avon & Somerset Police

Is this our biggest police scandal ever?

Operation Ore


Operation Ore saw some 7,272 British residents targeted on suspicion of buying child porn online. Duncan Campbell a computer expert wrote in the Guardian in 1977 that 39 men have killed themselves under the pressure of the investigations, hundreds, possibly thousands, more, have had their lives, families and careers destroyed and that thousands of cases under Operation Ore have been built on the shakiest of foundations - the use of credit card details to sign up for pornography websites.
