Is it illegal watching animal porn in the UK? I did just recently

Resolved Question:

Is it illegal watching animal porn in the UK?
I did just recently and only now think it might be illegal.
If it is illegal I certainly won't watch again.
But could I be prosecuted for having done it.
Thanks,
Peter

Hi.
Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
No, it is not I'm afraid.
Beastiliaty would offend under the Extreme Pornography legislation which is covered by S63 Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008.
It is not really any more complicated than that.
Can I clarify anything for you?

Hello Jo,

Are you saying that it is not legal watching animal porn?

What is my situation having done it ?

Thanks, Peter

Thanks.

Do I need to do anything about having already watched it?

Should I be going to the police and telling them?

No, absolutely not. We do not walk into police stations with our hands in the air.
They have no evidence against you and there is no sense in giving them any.
Do nothing. Most likely nothing will happen.
