Paedophile Shaun Pudwell of Gillingham in Medway was found guilty of attempting to groom three schoolgirls from other parts of the UK. Pudwell was also found guilty on nine other counts, including five of making indecent photographs of children, inciting child prostitution or pornography and three counts of causing a child to watch pornography.
The Police were clear “… I’m glad these young girls were confident enough in their local police to come forward and speak with us and I would encourage any other young people … to do the same”
The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP), together with the Police and other agenices are really making a difference. It is equally important that schools ensure children know how to report incidents, and that clear supporting policies and procedures are in place!
