A FEARED paedophile who ‘violated’ the trust of families to get to their children will be sent to a bail hostel on release from prison.

Following the Mercury’s story that Andrew Fox, 47, will be freed in just 20 days, police have since responded by announcing he will not be allowed to return to his home in Kewstoke.

Instead, the Manor Gardens resident will be kept in a bail hostel where he will be monitored by police as part of a sexual offences prevention order (SOPO) laid on him.

Fox was handed an 18-month jail sentence after admitted to breaching his initial SOPO four times at Bristol Crown Court.

The man broke the order by befriending children while carrying out deliveries of food and drink to their parents.

But despite the lengthy jail sentence, Fox will be released within three weeks because of time he has already spent on remand.
