In 1995 Julia Somerville found herself being arrested for photos of her daughter, following the introduction of new laws.

The arrest of newsreader Julia Somerville over allegedly indecent photographs of her seven-year-old daughter has opened the debate this weekend on the law relating to child pornography.

The pictures of Ms Somerville's daughter were reported to police by a member of staff at Boots. The chemist chain has a policy of reporting any photographs that staff believe may be obscene or pornographic.
It doesn't mean we shouldn't have laws to protect children but getting the balance right seems to be a major problem.
