The Home Office is being advised to try to limit the effect of sexual images on children.

The report examines the effect of what has become known as the "sexualisation" of young girls, in particularly the way they are bombarded with images of perfect bodies and subjected to marketing techniques that use sex to sell their products.

Dr Linda Papadopoulos, a psychologist who specialises in the effects of image-making on young girls and the author of the report explains their findings.
