Manchester City Council refused to comment this week on whether it knowingly placed a convicted paedophile on a council estate in Ancoats.

Outraged parents stormed the man's flat after claims that he had enticed three boys back there. Police confirmed reports that windows had been smashed and graffiti daubed on a wall.

Tenants also protested outside Manchester City Council's housing office last week demanding the removal of any other paedophiles.

Chief executive Arthur Sandford called for a change in the law to allow councils to fulfil housing responsibilities while protecting children.

A national framework is needed to monitor convicted paedophiles after they leave custody, he said.

Greater Manchester Police confirmed that the man had been charged with criminal and public order offences. However, no complaints in relation to young boys had been made.
