Scotland Yard was alerted after visitors to the exhibition at the Spitz gallery in London complained they considered the images, showing the girl as a baby, a toddler, and a five-year-old, to be pornographic. The doors of the gallery at Spitalfields Market in east London were closed and the windows covered while the gallery took advice from officers. The artist, American Betsy Schneider, was amazed. She said: "The aim of these pictures is not to provoke or to shock. The idea is to show time, change and growth. The case has echoes of the furore in when police threatened to seize three of American photographer Tierney Gearon's images of her children in the nude from the Saatchi gallery in London. Then the former culture minister, Chris Smith, intervened to chastise officers for overstepping the mark between probity and censorship. Ms Schneider's piece, exhibited in a festival celebrating women's writing, is made up of three large blocks of pictures, each of which shows 63 images of her daughter, Madeleine. One block shows her aged nine weeks; in the second she is 2 years old; in the third, which caused offence, she is aged five. In most of the images she is naked, though in a few she does wear clothes.
The girl is taking legal action against Facebook and the man who posted the image in what is believed to be the first case of its kind in the world. The girl, who cannot be identified, is seeking damages for misuse of private information, negligence and breach of the Data Protection Act. On Tuesday, an official report revealed that more than prosecutions have been brought since new laws to tackle revenge porn were rolled out across the UK.

After members of vigilante group Dark Justice found out which Asda store he worked at they followed him home before passing his address to police, Chronicle Live reports. He was spared jail but was handed a two-year community order with rehabilitation requirements. He must sign the sex offenders register and amide by the terms of a sexual harm prevention order for five years. And he sent sickening messages to the profile being run by members of the child protection organisation. During one of their conversations, Amy questioned him on his desire for a younger female, suggesting he surely would prefer someone of his own age.
