A DAD is facing the horror that his three kids will have a paedophile as a stepdad in the near future and he can’t do a think about it.

Alex Taylor, a convicted child sex abuser, is set to marry the dad’s former wife, sparking safety fears for the kids.

The man, who has not been named, told The Bolton News: “It makes me sick to the stomach.

“I feel let down and I can’t believe it. I don’t feel they are safe.”

He says he only find out who his ex-wife was seeing when a friend told him.

The man said: “Her friend called me up and said ‘do you know she is with a convicted paedophile?’

“At the time I didn’t believe her. I only believed it when my son told me. He asked me if I knew his mum was with someone who abused kids.”

Taylor was convicted in 2011 of grooming and abusing a 14-year-old girl.

He used internet chatrooms to groom the teenager before having sex with her on several occasions.

Taylor was caught in a police sting to catch online sex offenders when an undercover cop posed as a 14-year-old girl.

He was banged up for seven years with an extended licence of eight years and also placed on the sex offenders’ register for life.

Detective Constable Laura Dixon, from Greater Manchester’s sexual crime unit, said at the time: “Taylor’s propensity for young girls is clear. Having already used the internet to groom and then have sex with a girl he knew full well was underage, he continued to use these chat rooms and was prepared to travel to meet what he thought was another 14-year-old girl.”

There is no suggestion he has re-offended since being released on licence in 2014.

The three children had been subject to a child protection plan but were removed from the register earlier this year by Bolton Children’s Services.

A council spokesman said the plan was no longer needed.

He said: The decision to remove a child protection plan is made in consultation with other agencies and is only taken when it is agreed that a child is no longer at risk of serious harm.

“We act on any information from any source to protect children who may be at risk from abuse or harm. The child protection system operates on a multi-agency arrangement to ensure information is shared between partner organisations so we can identify perpetrators and prevent harm.”

The dad believes that under the terms of his release Taylor cannot spend a night at his girlfriend’s house when the children are present.

It is thought Taylor has to regularly meet his probation officer and has to vouch he is sticking to the terms of his licence.


When the couple eventually marry the pair will only be able to be in the presence of the kids if there is another adult present, it is believed.

HM Prison and Probation Service spokesman said: “Our priority is to protect the public and the risk posed by sex offenders is robustly assessed before they are released on licence.

“They are monitored closely and made to follow a strict set of conditions, which if breached could see them go back to prison.”
