The Australian Communications and Media Authority says it's blocked a network of child pornography sites in Australia after a tip-off from a member of the public.

A child-abuse hotline in Ireland received a report of websites which had images of children being abused that were registered in Australia.

ACMA says it and the Federal Police worked with the company that had registered the domain name to block access to the sites.
