Children’s charities are outraged after Northumbria police paid a child rapist £10,000 to inform on a paedophile ring. Steve Ashman, chief constable of Northumbria police, said that the move was “morally right” after information led to the conviction of a major grooming gang in Newcastle.

Do you agree – was it morally the right thing to do?
