Sex offenders are entering the UK after borders to migrants from eastern Europe were opened, a police chief has warned. Terry Grange, the Dyfed-Powys chief constable and Association of Chief Police Officers' spokesman on child protection, said people may be at risk. He told BBC Wales' Dragon's Eye there was not a level playing field with the open borders policy.
He said other countries did not have Britain's sophisticated policy of monitoring sex offenders. In comments supported by representatives of the Polish community in Wales, Mr Grange said some offenders would be leaving those countries bound for the UK, without appearing on any register. "There will be people coming into this country with criminal records and sex offenders too - guaranteed," he said.
