Porn viewers will have to prove age as online law passes

Websites which are more than one-third pornographic will be obliged to verify the age of UK visitors under a law which has now been passed.

Although the porn regulations had been delayed as the government sought to work out some kinks, it is now expected to implement age verification checks for anyone wishing to access porn in the UK from around April.
