Sex tourism that shames everyone.

FIDEL Castro does not care as much about his nation's children as this Government does about ours.

As we report on pages 28 and 29 today, Cuba turns a blind eye when under- age girls become cheap prostitutes to satisfy the lust of ageing British sex tourists.

Now that the Philippines and Thailand have begun to clamp down on this disgusting trade Havana has become the new Bangkok.

We may not like Castro's communist regime but we must co-operate with it if this vile exploitation is to end.

The Foreign Office should talk to the Cuban government to ensure that our sex beasts are arrested. Or deported to be charged with their perverted crimes here.

And British travel agents must play their part by making sure they are not used as a cover for sex tours.

It is to Britain's shame that our citizens are allowed to take advantage of the innocence and poverty of children.

And we cannot hold our heads high again until we put a stop to it.
