2:03 pm on 12 September 2016

Reports from Vanuatu say a suspected British paedophile has been released on bail in Port Vila.

He had been reported to the police by concerned parents after seeing him in the company of young boys.

The suspect was first arrested in 2014 but then released on bail.

He was re-arrested four times for alleged child sex offences but escaped the country on his yacht while awaiting prosecution.

He is now free on bail to appear in court on September 29.
