'Dangerous' British paedophile twins held in France
French police have located wanted and dangerous British paedophile twins Kenneth and Thomas Parker, who have apparently been living in France for years, a judicial source said Friday.
The twins, reportedly former mercenaries who fought in the break up of Yugoslavia, were put on Britain's Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre's list of most-wanted child sex offenders in March.
French police caught Kenneth Parker near the western coastal resort of Bernerie-en-Retz on Wednesday after he fled his home in nearby Quillan last weekend, the source said.
His brother Thomas was discovered to have already been in prison in nearby Agen, where he has been held for several weeks on domestic violence charges.
The men, described as dangerous by the CEOP, were wanted for failing to report to British authorities as was required of them, as they are on the register of convicted sex offenders.
