The number of reports of child pornography in the Netherlands increased by tenfold in the past five years. In 2014, the police received some 3 thousand reports, this year there were 30 thousand, according to a study by Bureau Beke, NU.nl reports.

The researchers attribute the massive increase to the fact that companies like Google, Facebook and Microsoft are now required to report if they come across potentially child pornographic material.

The police have too little manpower to check all signals about illegal fireworks, according to Gerrit van de Kamp of police union ACP. There are simply not enough police officers to go check every address where illegal fireworks are suspected, RTL Nieuws reports.

The police are intensively searching for illegal fireworks providers and buyers, but they can't keep up. "That stuff is traded across the entire country", Van der Kamp said. "The police want to check all suspicions, but the amount of work is too great."
