Sex pest hostel protest.
Around 50 people protested yesterday over fears that sex offenders are being resettled at a hostel near Wrexham.
Protesters walked round the Plas Madoc estate waving placards and then stood outside the Plas y Wern bail hostel.
Last year, three protesters chained themselves to railings outside the hostel during a demonstration.
The Home Office said it cannot discuss individual cases, but none of the people staying at the bail hostel posed a serious risk to the local community.
Protest organiser Sue Charles from nearby Rhosymedre said: 'We have got concerns about the bail hostel being close to too many primary and secondary schools in the area.
'If you get a paedophile that harms a child, it destroys that child's life and wrecks their family's too.'
The Home Office said there had been no change to the category of people housed at Plas y Wern. A spokeswoman said: 'Public safety is our top priority.'
Local MP Martyn Jones said he had received assurances from the probation service that no-one who posed a serious risk would be sent to Plas y Wern.
But he said it was impossible not to allow anyone who was on the sex offenders register from going there.
