Moment paedophile is hounded out of his council home by vigilante neighbours who targeted him after being told of his crimes
- Vandals scrawled ‘nonce’ on door of paedophile who lived near a school in Hull
- Last Friday, after two days in his new home, neighbours surrounded his property
- Police had to be called to escort the sex offender and his partner from the street
- Hull City Council says ex-cons’need to live a life free from harassment’
A convicted paedophile and his partner were hounded out of a council house by furious neighbours just days after he had been forced to flee a home next to a school.
The sex offender, who has preyed on women and girls, fled a house in Hull that was just 40 yards away from a high school after vandals smashed windows and scrawled ‘nonce’ on his front door last Wednesday.
Two days later, after being moved to a council house seven miles away, the offender’s neighbours were tipped off about his sordid past and surrounded his new home, forcing police to come to his rescue again.

Residents clapped and thanked officers as they escorted the man his partner from the house.
As the paedophile gets in the back of a police car, the person filming shouts: ‘Go on, jelly belly. You’re going again.’
Footage of the incident – filmed by an onlooker – was posted anonymously on social media last week and has gone viral with more than 100,000 views.
The man’s partner then walks towards a nearby police van, dragging a dog by its lead and her leggings start to fall down as she climbs into the van – exposing her backside.
Neighbours surrounded the home in Hull after learning about the occupant’s history of sex offences. He had been moved out of another council home, close to a school, just two days before
The laughing crowd hurls insults at her and cheers as the pair are taken away.
A separate clip showed the woman yank the dog by its neck as she lifted it into the van.
Locals were furious that a paedophile was housed on the same street as a school – which also backs on to a primary school.
Stacy Carter told the Hull Daily Mail: ‘We want to know why they have put a paedo so close to two schools. He can see the academy from his kitchen window.
‘The police told me I shouldn’t judge people on their previous offences but what am I supposed to think?’
Another neighbour said anonymously: ‘I am disgusted by what’s happened and disgusted with the council for letting him move there, close to schools.
‘They need to move him far away. He is a waste of space.’
A third added: ‘Everyone round here is disgusted that he has been moved to an area with a primary and a secondary school.
‘He tried to befriend us all but he has not been honest. I feel sorry for his neighbours who helped him when he first moved to cook his food.’

Defending its decision, a Hull City Council spokeswoman said: ‘We and the police are aware of the local action that has been taken against this tenant.
‘Local authorities have a duty to provide accommodation for ex-offenders and there are very strict regulations in place regarding this.
‘No property would be allocated without these strict criteria being met.
‘Ex-prisoners live in all communities and if they are to be successfully rehabilitated they need to live a life free from harassment or threat of illegal action.’
