The Broadcasting Authority of Ireland will police video content on Facebook under new proposals before Government.

The Sunday Independent reports the BAI aims to become an enlarged media commission to enforce European rules.

The BAI currently regulates Irish commercial radio and television as well as RTE and TG4.

With the social media giants based in Ireland, it will now regulate content on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube in Ireland and throughout the EU.

Policing user access to online content came to the forefront following last week's verdict of the Ana Kriegel murder trial.

Moving forward, age verification, parental controls and a ‘robust’ complaints mechanism according to BAI proposals to Government seen by the Sunday Independent.

The BAI proposals also want an Online Safety Commissioner to form part of its increased regulatory role.
