police reassure residents over paedophile letters
police have this week reassured residents that an anonymous letter
which is being dropped through letterboxes, alleging that a paedophile
is living in the town, is 'malicious'.
Ian Kennett told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Some residents in the
Burnham Road and Marine Drive area have received the letters in
the post stating that a paedophile was living at an address in
information on the letters has been checked and the address has
been discounted and the information is believed to be malicious."
added that PCSOs from Burnham Police Station have carried out
house-to-house visits in the area and reassured residents that
there is no cause for public alarm.
