Dangerous sex offenders face being forced to take lie detector tests on their release from jail, it has emerged. Paedophiles and rapists will be made to answer a series of questions about their intentions while hooked up to a polygraph machine.
The results could see the terms of their release restricted or, in the most serious cases, land them back in prison.
There are about 3,000 sex offenders being managed on licence in the community at any one time, with more than 750 considered to be the most serious - the category affected by the proposals.
