Threats will not work

It is outrageous that this newspaper is being threatened with legal action by the serial rapist Michael Murray in a bid to gag us.

This criminal wants us to desist from printing stories about him, but our responsibilities lie with our readers and not with with a man who was convicted of a series of violent sex attacks in one week.

We make no apologies for this. The status quo whereby sex offenders can move into areas without the public being informed is not good enough.
