Paedophile hunting group conducts sting at Holmeside Bar

A North East paedophile hunting group have conducted a sting operation at a Holmeside Bar tonight.

The group, known as Guardians of the North, typically conduct “sting” operations by setting up decoy social media profiles, which then are solicited by paedophiles on their own accord.

Once they are identified, the group confronts the perpretrator and hands material over to the police.

The sting has occurred outside of the bar DJ Live Lounge, creating what witnesses described as a confrontation.

Guardians of the North have since told SGM the sting is related to a DJ who works at the club.
