Netflix has labelled all of its content with a UK age rating generated by an algorithm.

The technology was developed with the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC), which classifies films in cinemas.

Netflix staff watched its entire catalogue, tagging sex scenes, depictions of violence and swear words, then fed this data into the algorithm.

The BBFC urged other streaming services to follow suit.
