Should Hackney child counsellor ever have got the job?

In December a Hackney child counsellor was found guilty of offering £300 to a 14-year-old girl to have sex with him: Child therapist tried to bribe underage girl for sex.

According to court reports Brian Pead had been dismissed from a job at Lambeth Borough Council for masturbating in a theatre before he came to work in Hackney.

The court was told that he worked for a counselling agency in Hackney, sometimes with children who had suffered from sexual abuse.

When he was caught in a police sting Brian Pead claimed that he was carrying out research for his work as a children's counsellor.

Blood and Property asked Hackney Council for details about Pead's work in Hackney on Wednesday but was told that, because various people were either ill or away, there would be no answer until next week.
