Perv back to haunt youngsters

An evil pervert jailed for sex offences against foreign boys is back in his old haunt

Twisted paedophile Kevin Dromgoole is living with his mum… only a few miles from where he ran boys’ clubs in the past. 

Sleazy Dromgoole moved into mum Mary’s house weeks after being released from prison.

He was jailed for 18 months in 1995 after he admitted molesting teenage tourists. 

He lured young backpackers to his seedy flat and impressed them with claims that he knew top pop stars like U2 and Rod Stewart. He plied the boys – aged between 14 and 17 with drink – then filmed himself carrying out sick sex acts. 

Friends thought he had disappeared abroad where the sex laws aren’t as strict. 

But the Sunday Mail can reveal that the sicko is living in Dunipace, near Falkirk. 

Dromgoole was a leading light in boys’ clubs in nearby Denny in the 1970s, where he coached hundreds of youngsters. Shortly after he was jailed, some contacted us to reveal how Dromgoole used to order them to strip NAKED before WEIGHING them. 

Last night one boy who used to attend Dromgoole’s St Alex-ander’s Boys’ Club, said: “I can’t believe he’s had the nerve to come back here. 

“He is a horrible man who has ruined a lot of young lives.” 

Last night, Dromgoole said: “I did something wrong and I have done my time for it. 

“I am sorry for what I did and what it did to my family. 

“My mother has suffered a lot from all this.” 

Last year, we revealed that Scots police passed on vital information about him to detectives probing the Belgian house of horror child- sex killings. 

Sickening kiddie porn tapes seized from his flat in Edinburgh are being studied by Interpol. 

The tapes show sick sex scenes involving young boys believed to be from Belgium, Germany and Holland.
