Calls for an urgent change to the law to provide anonymity for revenge porn victims have been backed by Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner Ron Ball.

Mr Ball has pledged his backing for the ‘No More Naming’ campaign, which aims to close a legal loophole which means that, unlike other sexual crimes, victims of revenge porn have no right to anonymity.

“I fully support this campaign – I think it is a case of the law not having kept pace with the fast-changing nature of technology and we need to make sure that victims of these kinds of offences are given the same level of protection as any other victim of a sexual offence would expect,” Mr Ball said.

“Sadly, it would appear that without giving victims additional legal protection some newspapers and other media outlets will continue to name people and humiliate people,” he said.
