Communications Minister Denis Naughten will this week seek Government approval to appoint a dedicated digital safety officer and try to have the role of that person clearly defined within weeks.

According to today’s Irish Independent, Minister Naughten's response came as one of the country's most senior gardaí warned that internet controls were currently not good enough to protect children from sexual predators.

Mr Naughten said he had already consulted widely with the technology sector and others concerned by this real threat.

He said progress was being made - but the challenge remained complex and vast.
