British Prime Minister David Cameron will announce Tuesday a plan aimed at protecting children from adult Internet content.

Four of Britain's largest Internet providers will require customers to chose if they wish to receive the explicit content. The move is meant to protect children from viewing inappropriate sexual content.

The new plan will include a website that allows parents to report inappropriate content in other mediums, including advertisements, billboards and television.

The prime minister's plan is in response to a report from the Mothers' Union charity, which cited pornography and inappropriate images as wrecking childhood.
