Anyone who visits a porn site in the new year will be asked for proof of age in the form of a driving licence or age verification cards.

The ban was approved in the House of Commons on Monday as part of the Digital Economy Act.

It was actually discussed last year but the plans kicked up confusion on how the age verification would work.

Anyone looking to watch porn from a British IP address will be quizzed – including those using free sites.
