UK to consider outlawing revenge porn: court official

LONDON--Angry lovers who post naked images of former partners on the Internet without their consent could face prosecution in Britain, the justice secretary said on Tuesday.

So-called “revenge porn” is a growing problem in Britain and the government is open to creating a law against it, Justice Secretary Chris Grayling said.

“It's clearly becoming a bigger problem in our society,” Grayling told the lower house of parliament.

“The government is very open to having a serious discussion about this with a view to taking appropriate action in the autumn if we can identify the best way of doing so.”
