Voice of the Daily Mirror: Net closes on paedos.

THE jailing of pervert Lee Costi should serve as a warning to internet paedophiles.

No longer can vile men hide behind the anonymity of cyberspace to lure innocent victims into their clutches.

Costi's nine years behind bars is a tribute to the Virtual Global Taskforce, an international organisation created to punish sex offenders.

Parents and young people can never drop their guard in popular chat rooms and the other people on the web may not be who they seem.

The internet is a wonderful invention that has extended the horizons of all of us, but we must never forget it is also exploited by depraved men and women.

Costi is the first person to be jailed thanks to the new internet taskforce, but, alas, it will uncover others.

Tough law enforcement and vigilance by parents giving their children good advice can defeat the paedophiles.

But the battle will not be won if, individually and collectively, we drop our guard.
