It's something every parent dreads – their child accidentally being exposed to unpleasant content online.

 

In the case of this mum and dad, it was a menu of hardcore pornography.

In video which has now gone viral, their young son requests a show about "diggers" from Amazon's voice-activated Echo device.

But the device, whose automated robot responder is called "Alexa", gets the wrong end of the stick and offers up a selection of pornography.

"No! Alexa, stop!" the parents can be heard screaming as their son looks up in confusion.

Thankfully, the little boy wasn't using the device unattended or the outcome couold have been very different.

It's not the first time porn has appeared on screen when it definitely shouldn't, with commuters shocked recently when graphic images began to display above their heads at a train station.
