'No place to hide'

Police are hailing the early success of the recently launched "most wanted" child abusers website after a third convicted paedophile was caught in northern France yesterday.

Paul Francis Turner, aged 57, was spotted by members of the public who had seen his photograph and details on the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre website. The site opened last month in a bid to track down five missing child sex attackers.

The arrest follows the capture of Kamil Krawiec on his return to Stansted from his native Poland last Thursday. Gordon Stewart turned himself in to Midlands police hours after the website went live. Information about Alexander Colin Dalgleish, who was last seen in Aire, and Joshua Karney is still sought.

The men are all on the Sex Offenders Register, which obliges them to report their whereabouts to police.

CEOP Centre chief executive Jim Gamble said: "If you are a convicted child sex offender and you think that you can escape the terms of your conviction by jumping across borders, going into hiding, assuming different identities - then think again. You will be caught - there is no place to hide. Three out of five have already been found and we are looking to post details of new offenders in the next few weeks."

The CEOP Centre is here. ®
