29th October 2018

On 24 October 2018 the BBC reported that an explicit file of women’s photos was being shared online.  The link has been published on various social media sites and named the women, all of whom are stated to be from the Sunderland area.

Northumbria Police are investigating a report of malicious communication concerning the explicit photographs being circulated.

Guidance on what to do if you are a victim of so called “revenge porn” can be found by following this link.

We have previously written a number of blogs on the sharing of explicit images without the subject’s consent.

If you seek advice on pursuing compensation from persons who have shared explicit images of you without your consent contact one of our Civil Solicitors Richard Hardy, Andrew Freckleton or Katy Stephenson.  We can give you advice on how such cases may be pursued while maintaining your anonymity.
