A MAN from Huddersfield was arrested as part of efforts to smash an international paedophile network, it has emerged.
All of Britain’s 43 police forces were involved in Operation Rescue, one of the biggest inquiries ever mounted into paedophiles on the internet.
In Britain, 240 suspects were identified, leading to 121 arrests and 33 convictions.
Among the arrests was a 22-year-old man from Milnsbridge in June last year.
He was cautioned in November for possessing indecent images of children.
Others were arrested in Halifax, Bradford and Leeds.
The probe, which ran for more than three years, saw 670 people targeted across the globe.
Investigators have identified and rescued 230 abused children, including 60 in the UK.
Details of the investigation were released after the Dutch owner of a website at the centre of the inquiry was jailed for three years and six months.
Linchpin Amir Ish-Hurwitz, 37, ran online forum boylover.net, which had 70,000 members.
Through it paedophiles set up private links to share sick images and films of child abuse.
