Paedophile hunters 'destroying people's lives for Facebook likes' © Other Evidence from paedophile hunters is increasingly being used to prosecute offenders

Vigilante paedophile hunters are slowing down police investigations and destroying people's lives in the name of "Facebook likes", a chief constable has warned.

The activists are causing people to be wrongly accused, attacked and even take their own lives, according to Simon Bailey, who leads the UK's response to child sexual abuse.

Evidence from paedophile hunters is increasingly being used to prosecute offenders, but police are divided on the issue, and some fear the groups' tactics could impede their own work.

Facebook tried to turn a ban of far-right figures into a PR opportunity, but it backfired

Facebook tried to turn a ban of far-right figures into a PR opportunity, but it backfired Facebook is finally banning a bunch of conspiracy theorists and far-right people — but it hasn't gone entirely to plan. On Thursday, the California social network announced that it was taking action against a bunch of controversial figures on its apps, including Alex Jones, Milo Yiannopoulos, Louis Farrakhan, and the conspiracy site Infowars. The company also briefed a handful of news outlets under embargo in advance of the announcements, including The Washington Post and The Atlantic.

Mr Bailey, who is head of child protection at the National Police Chiefs' Council, emphatically ruled out working with the groups, saying they take "completely unnecessary risks".

He said: "I can't deny they've led to convictions, but they've also led to people being blackmailed, people being subject of GBH (grievous bodily harm), the wrong people being accused, people committing suicide as a result of interventions, family lives being completely destroyed, in the name of what? Facebook likes."

Mr Bailey, who is Norfolk Police's chief constable, said one referral from a paedophile hunting group can take a working day to investigate, time that could have been spent identifying half a dozen offenders.

Online paedophile hunting groups are incredibly popular. Some attract hundreds of thousands of followers to their social media pages. “ Hunters ” have also proven somewhat effective in assisting the police.

"So many of these groups' drivers are about seeking infamy through the number of hits they get, the number of likes they get, the number of people that view their live streams," he added.

"My mission is to safeguard children. There's a world of difference."

Mr Bailey also criticised social media companies for failing to do enough to protect children from abuse, suggesting a public boycott may be needed to hit big platforms which have the ability to "pretty much eradicate" indecent imagery.

The number of images on the child abuse image database has ballooned from less than 10,000 in the 1990s to 13.4 million currently, with more than 100 million variations of these.

Mr Bailey's comments on paedophile hunters mark a shift from remarks in September 2017 when he was quoted as saying that working with vigilantes was something to potentially consider.

A ‘ paedophile - hunting ’ group has decided to stop posting stings to Facebook Live , following an incident on Easter Sunday. The Hunted One, which has over 70,000 Likes on the social network, live streams video footage of groups of vigilantes confronting suspected sex offenders.

The 43-year-old gardener from Hampshire, who had allegedly arranged to meet a 14-year-old child in a supermarket car park, was arrested by police, questioned and released under investigation.

The coroner at his inquest ruled that social media posts by the vigilante group were a "causative factor" in his suicide.

Last year Sky News was given exclusive access to follow several teams from the Midlands and the north of England, who banded together to track down and confront a suspected sex offender in Birmingham.

Volunteers from four of the groups acted as decoys, posing as underage girls on internet chatrooms, to gather evidence on the man.

The teams logged hundreds of pages of transcripts of the man's online conversations, where it is claimed he made suggestions of a sexual nature and sent explicit photos and videos to the decoys.

But senior police officers said they had serious concerns about the activities of a number of the groups, particularly when it comes to filming confrontations with suspected paedophiles and posting them online.

'We should never underestimate the difficulties they face' - Justice Minister pays tribute to gardai who lost their lives during service.
Justice Minister Charlie Flanagan paid tribute today to gardai who gave their lives in the line of duty. He contrasted their sacrifice and bravery to the "ignominious cowardice" of those sought to undermine people's way of life in Ireland. He was speaking at the annual Memorial Day for members of the force killed on duty. The 88 gardai who lost their lives upholding law, order and peace in Ireland since the foundation of the State are an inspiration and example for all, he said. Families and loved ones of many of the officers who fell in the line of duty were present at the ceremony at Dublin Castle this afternoon.
