The owner of the now infamous B&B where police found a man devouring a woman’s eyeballs has discovered that the local council had sent paedophiles and killers to stay with her.

Last year Matthew Williams was discovered in a “zombie like state” having eaten part of 22-year-old Cerys Yemm’s face.

Williams had been released from jail just two weeks prior and had been staying in the The Sirhowy Arms Hotel in Bargoed, south Wales.

Williams was found “eating his victim to death” when the staff entered his room, reports indicate that he had been chewing on her eyeball “like a Creme Egg” and that he had eaten half of the girls face

Police shot 34-year-old Williams with a taser gun after they burst onto the horrific scene.

“While under arrest, the man became unresponsive,” Gwent Police said in a statement.

“Officers and paramedics administered first aid but he has since been pronounced deceased.”

Mandy Miles, the owner of the Sirhowy Arms, said “‘I had to Google to find out what they’d done.”

In an interview with BBC programme Week In Week Out, which will be broadcast tonight, Sirhowy Arms owner Mandy Miles said she had no idea of Williams’ violent past or that she had housed other dangerous offenders in the past, reports the Metro.

“I never thought for a single minute that I would be in danger or that anyone else would be in danger. I would never have let them through the door,” she told the programme.

Mrs Miles admitted that she was happy to accept people who had been to prison as well as those with alcohol, drug and mental issues , believing that they were not a danger.

However, following last November’s cannibalism killing a Freedom of Information Act request revealed that the council had referred 10 sexual and violent offenders who had been homeless.
