A FATHER-OF-TWO who warned people in a Welsh village about a convicted child sex offender living in the community has been charged with harassment under new laws designed to stop stalkers. Darren Laverty, 30, who distributed 400 leaflets warning that the man was living in a house in the village, was charged earlier this week after being stopped by police.

Mr Laverty said yesterday: "The families were so shocked they did not know what to do and asked me for advice. We all thought that that particular village needed to be aware of what was happening and I wanted to alert people to the dangers."
