Dubbed the Beast of Sligo, one of Britain’s most notorious paedophiles, Irishman Joseph McColgan, appears to be back on the streets and free to mingle with children and families after being spotted at a car boot sale in Plymouth, Devon.
McColgan was jailed for a record 238 years for repeatedly raping and beating his own children but served just nine years before he was released. Obviously a wise move as in June 2010 he was locked up again for 30 months for possessing child pornography.
Once again let out early, McColgan is staying at the Lawson House bail hostel in Plymouth, opposite one of the city’s main colleges, as part of his parole licence. Another wise move.
