Police detain man after allegedly grabbing child
A police officer has intervened heroically to rescue an 11-year-old girl from a suspected paedophile who could now face chemical castration.

The officer recalled: “I noticed a man near the entrance who was forcibly holding a girl [aged 11 or 12], trying to take her to his flat. It was clear that the child was trying to escape.
