Arrests in web paedophile raids

Five men have been arrested in north Wales after police carried out dawn raids on suspected paedophiles.

Six properties in north Wales were searched and more arrests are expected, said a police spokesman.   The swoops on Thursday across the force area came as part of an ongoing investigation into paedophiles on the internet.   It follows intelligence reports received from the National Crime Squad and is linked to websites in the US.

A police spokesman said: "Uniformed officers, supported by officers from the CID and hi-tech crime units, executed the warrants. Further arrests are anticipated.   "Inquiries are ongoing at this early stage."   The men arrested are aged between 40 and 60.

Superintendent Chris Corcoran, of North Wales Police, said: "This is a successful outcome of a well-planned operation to ensure that we give the right message to the communities of north Wales.  "That message is that we will stamp on paedophilia every time we receive information that we can act upon."
