Paedophile Could Have Been Caught Five Years Ago, Says Mum Of Victim


A paedophile could have been stopped five years ago, according to the mum of a young victim.

Lloyd Breach was jailed for two years after admitting 13 sexual offences against three girls – one aged just 13.

But a mother claims she reported Breach to police in 2008, when he was just 16 years old, but she was ignored.

She says Breach, a former doorman who appeared on the daytime show in 2008, groomed her two young daughters.

The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, claims she told Sussex Police that Breach had sex with her 15-year-old daughter before making online advances towards the child's younger sister.

But police allegedly told her it was 'just what teenagers get up to' and there was nothing they could do because Breach was 16 - just a year older than her daughter.

The mother said: "He made contact with my daughter via Facebook and kept messaging her to say he wanted to see her.

"Then in the school summer holidays he came over to my house and told my daughter, who had just turned 15, to have sex with him - it was done in my bed.

"She was under the age of consent so it was statutory rape but nothing was done.

"Breach then tried to speak to my younger daughter last year when she was only 15.

"Breach preys on young children, and aged 13 to 15 they are still children because they cannot make those types of decisions.

"He goes for them because he thinks he can control them and make them do what he wants.

"His victims suffer for life and are left traumatised while he gets a lesser sentence.

"Children need to be protected from him to make sure he doesn't do this again."

Sussex Police declined to comment about the mother's 2008 statement, because they said that Breach was subject to another police inquiry.

Breach admitted two offences of sexual assault, an offence of inciting a girl aged between 13 and 15 to engage in sexual activity, two offences of grooming, one count of attempted grooming and seven charges relating to the possession of indecent images.

Sentenced at Hove Crown Court this month, Breach from Ifield, West Sussex, was also placed on the Sex Offenders Register for 10 years.
