Sex offender checks welcomed

People across England and Wales will be able to check with the police whether individuals dealing with their children have any history of child sex offences. A similar scheme will operate in Scotland. Donald Findlater of the Lucy Faithfull Foundation discusses the new scheme with Margaret Ann Cummings, whose eight year-old son Mark was murdered by a convicted paedophile, Stuart Leggate, who lived in the same tower block as Margaret Ann Cummings' family.
