Mother's anger over paedophile sentence

A mother whose young daughter was snatched off the street by a paedophile as she ran an errand to the local shop has expressed outrage at the three and half year sentence given to her attacker.

The 10-year-old girl was taken into bushes just a few hundred yards from her home but she managed to break free as her attacker attempted to assault her.

Peter Carroll, 52, was convicted of kidnapping, committing an offence with intent to cause a sex act and inciting a child to commit sex acts.

The girl's mother, who can not be identified to protect her daughter's identity, says the sentence does not reflect the threat that the attacker poses to the the public.
