A high-risk sex offender is on the loose in Scotland but Crown lawyers have ordered police to keep his identity secret.
Senior detectives begged legal officials to let them warn the public about the pervert and publish his name and photograph.

The offender went missing from his home in the west of Scotland last month.
It’s the latest in a long line of cases where the authorities have concealed the identities of perverts on the run.

The latest secrecy order has horrified grieving mother Margaret-Ann Cummings, whose son Mark, eight, was murdered in 2004 by a pervert allowed to hide in her Glasgow neighbourhood.
