Mother locks kids in bedroom so she can live with paedophile

Social workers in Devon have approved a mother’s “safety plan” to lock her two young kids in their alarmed bedroom at night so she can continue living with a convicted paedophile.

Despite still being a "continuing risk", the sex offender, once jailed for attacking a girl under 13, has received the go ahead to move in with the mother and her two children-both under 13. A shocking report said to have been filed by the social workers reportedly reasoned that the kids were safe as the paedophile would have to climb over the mom from his side of the bed to get to the girls – and would therefore wake her up.
'It feels like my granddaughters are isolated and at risk'

The confined children would have to use a baby monitor to call for their mother if they needed to be let out to go to the toilet.

The grandmother of the children, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has criticised the social workers’ decision to allow the child abuser to move in despite being a “continuing risk”.

“Since learning my daughter’s new husband was a paedophile I’ve tried to express my concerns to social services. I’m appalled this man was allowed to move into the family home with my granddaughters. Other family members also feel their concerns are being ignored.

“The alarm and the other so-called precautions to stop my granddaughters being abused are a load of rubbish," she told the Sunday Mirror.

“It feels like my granddaughters are isolated and at risk. Social services don’t seem to want to listen to me. It’s heart-breaking, but I have to keep fighting this for the sake of the girls.”

The paedophile, whose identity was not revealed, is subject to a Sexual Offences Prevention Order (SOPO) that prevents him from contacting children under 16 without supervision.
