Paedophile [sic] net: Did Operation Ore change British society?
"It was the UK's biggest ever computer crime investigation. Thousands of people were accused of downloading images of child abuse - some were found to be innocent. The legacy is controversial. Ten years after the raids began, has Operation Ore really changed the UK?
On a cold, cloudy December day in 2002, Jonathan was about to take his class of children to chapel. His life as he knew it was about to end.
His headmaster appeared at the door and asked him to go with him. "There are two policemen who want to talk to you," he said."

10 years on..
"So what if operation ore had never happened what difference would it have made?
There would be several more people alive today that are dead now.
There would be hundreds less people deprived of work for looking at the wrong kind of images.
There would be hundreds fewer broken homes with, children with their loving parents rather than in care.
In short operation ore was a complete disaster; an unjustified witch
hunt, that wrecked havoc and left many good people in fear of the early
morning knock on the door. But no BBC reporter is going to say that."
