Police have said they may have to work with “paedophile hunters” after new figures revealed a rise in their evidence being used in court. Figures obtained by the BBC show 11% of court cases in 2014 for the crime of meeting a child following sexual grooming used evidence from “hunters”, rising to 44% in 2016.
Southampton-based Stephen Dure, known as Stevie Trap, has seen his evidence used in three court cases this year following stings.
In one case, he posed as a 14-year-old boy when chatting to Robert Babey who is due to be sentenced later this month after admitting multiple breaches of his Sexual Harm Prevention Order.

  1. How was he jeopardizing anything?
    He was saving lives.
    This bounty hunter is doing way more then the police.
    This is a moment when I wish citizens can demand proof from the police that they are trying to stop this.
