Vigilante Parents Hunt Down Paedophiles: Seven Arrests Following Online Sting

Seven people have been arrested as a result of parents acting as vigilantes and posing as underage children to entrap paedophiles.

The Letzgo Hunting group trick unsuspecting paedophiles into meeting up by pretending to be children. They then film their confrontations and post the videos online.

Police forces across the Midlands have made arrests as a result of information gathered by Letzgo Hunting, but warned their actions could undermine efforts to carry out police investigations.

Leicestershire Police arrested a 54-year-old man, a 24-year-old man and a 33-year-old man as a result of information passed on by the group.

Warwickshire Police have also arrested three men on suspicion of sexual grooming. All have been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

The latest person to be arrested was a 45-year-old from Sutton Coldfield. Leicestershire Police arrested him after his communications with what he thought was a 15-year-old girl.
