British MPs: Porn is as "harmful as cigarettes" and must be treated as a major health crisis

The MPs insisted ‘public places must be made safe for all women and girls’ as they called for a ban on viewing adult material on mobile phones on buses.

The group made a raft of recommendations on how to curb the harmful impacts of pornography.

And the committee also criticised social media firms such as Twitter and Facebook, noting: ‘Online spaces are public places where sexual harassment of women and girls is rife.’
