A 24-year-old woman whose pictures were included in a massive leak of intimate images has said “someone will end up dead” if the Government does not take action.

Megan Sims, from Limerick, has been campaigning against image-based abuse since her pictures were shared without her consent in 2016. Ms Sims was 19 at the time.

Her pictures were included in megafiles leaked online which included tens of thousands of pictures of Irish women. It emerged this week that anonymous forums, including hundreds of Irish men, were sharing and trading the pictures. Some images are understood to feature underage girls, while in others women appear to have been photographed without their knowledge.
