My friends, today at Sky News: "Paedophile Suspect" for taking sonīs photo.

A man who took a picture of his son while they were out shopping has been accused of being a paedophile and threatened with arrest.

Kevin Geraghty-Shewan had taken 4 year old Ben to the Bridges Shopping Centre in Sunderland to spend Ģ10 the boy had been given as a treat.

The dad told Sky News: "Ben spotted a childrenīs ride which had a train on it and wanted to have a go because heīs obsessed with trains.

"When he got on my wife suggested we take a picture of him".

"I took the picture on my phone and suddenly this security guard came up and told me it wasnīt allowed because I could be a paedophile."

"I told him Ben was my own son. But he said I couldnīt prove it. He said there is a real problem with paedophiles and that if I didnīt like it, heīd call the manager".

"A few minutes later... a policeman walked in and approached me, so they must have been tracking me on the CCTV".

"He said heīd received a complaint a man matching my description was taking pictures of children and wanted my name and address".

"I told him it was ridiculous because it was my own son. He then started asking me what I ws doing in Sunderland, asked for my name and address and told me he had the right to delete my pictures".

"I got annoyed and raised my voice a bit, then he threatened me with arrest for breach of the peace".

Mr.Geraghty-Shewan was so outraged by the incident, he posted a picture of the security guard on his website.

When contacted by Sky News the Bridges said in a statement: "We take the safety at all our shopping centres very seriously".

"We do ask our security guards across the estate to be diligent in implementing our security measures, which includes monitoring photography in our centres".

"Unfortunatelly on this occasion what should have been a simple polite conversation led to a misunderstanding and we apologise for any offence caused".

"It is always our aim to implement our security procedures with the minimum of fuss and disruption to our shoppers".

The world has gone mad Pedro..........a father cannot take a photograph of his own son, yet known paedophiles are released and sent to live in hostels close to schools, parks etc. Unbelievable.
