A local group of paedophile hunters set out last night to capture and question a man following sexual talk with an underage girl (decoy).

Officers were later called out to the scene in Dene Road, Andover at around 8:39 pm on 11/12/18 following a call by the Online Child Safety Team.

The call was made a member of the paedophile hunter team “COAT” and was filmed live on Facebook.
