A mother whose daughter was murdered by a convicted child abductor says she understands why people are angry to discover a child killer in their area.
Sara Payne now campaigns for a 'Sarah's Law'
Paedophile Robert Oliver, 52, had to be escorted from his home in Somerset by police after details of where he was living were published in a newspaper.
Some residents had protested outside his home, demanding he be moved.
Sara Payne, of Surrey, told BBC News 24 that Mr Oliver's move was not the outcome she wanted.
But she said: "I can understand their anger and I can understand why they're so upset."
"People found out in a way they shouldn't find out - through the (paper)."
Mr Oliver was driven off to an undisclosed location
Police have appealed for calm, warning "persistent media attention" could drive Mr Oliver underground.
A spokesman said as the law stood, Mr Oliver was a free man who was "fully co-operating" with protocol.
Ms Payne's eight-year-old daughter, Sarah, disappeared while playing near her grandparents' home in West Sussex, in 2000.
Her body was found 17 days later and in December 2001 Roy Whiting, who already had a conviction for child abduction, was sentenced to life in prison for her murder.
Ms Payne now campaigns for a "Sarah's Law" - giving public access to the Sex Offenders' Register.
She said she was not asking that everyone who had committed any kind of sex crime should be outed.
But what she wanted was to be told where the most predatory paedophiles are and how they are being managed.
Mr Oliver was a member of a gang involved in the killing of 14-year-old Jason Swift in 1985.
He was released in 1997 after serving 10 years of a 15-year sentence.
