I read this story in complete disbelief.
When I wrote about Megan’s Law last month I made the point that paedophiles who are known to be a danger to the public should be under lock and key. I didn’t expect that they would be handed that key.
Having two dangerous criminals “walk out” of Prescoed Open Prison is totally unacceptable. Prison overcrowding have driven the Prison Service to use “open” prisons to house dangerous criminals and this walking out is just the latest of a number of such abscondments.
This is the most basic of duties for the Home Office and yet again they have failed.
