They include an ISIS beheading, a video of a sex assault on a child and propaganda about the Westminster terror attack.

But moderators said the posts did not breach its community standards.

Facebook’s algorithms even promoted some of the material and suggested users join groups and add the people who had published it, an investigation found.

Leading QC Julian Knowles said the posts may be illegal under English law.

He said Facebook is breaking the law by refusing to remove posts once flagged to moderators.

An undercover Times reporter befriended more than 100 ISIS supporters while also joining groups promoting abusive images of kids.

Facebook took some down but others stayed.

Mr Knowles said if an illegal image is reported and a moderator allows it to stay, Facebook “might be regarded as assisting or encouraging its publication and distribution”.

Facebook said it has since removed the images.

Police would not say if the site would be investigated.
