Young mum ‘badly shaken’ by botched ‘paedophile sting’ thumbnail

THE PSNI has issued a strongly worded warning to vigilante groups after a gang of 'paedophile hunters' appeared to target the wrong house in Antrim last Friday night.
Springfarm community activist Seamus Davis claims that he was 'verbally abused and threatened by the vigilantes' after he stopped a number of people from outside the area from trying to gain access to a house in the estate.
According to Mr Davis, the house is occupied by a young woman and children who are new to the area.
He said that the woman has been left 'badly shaken' by the ordeal.
The unsavoury incident was filmed and viewed by over 1,000 people through the Facebook Live facility but was later deleted.
