Two young sisters are being locked inside an alarmed bedroom at night to protect them from their mother’s paedophile husband.

The astonishing story in the Sunday Mirror reveals how authorities have given the go-ahead to the bizarre plan so the girls’ mum can sleep with their stepfather.

The man, who is a convicted abuser, was once jailed for attacking a girl under 13.

Now he has been allowed to move in with her and the children, who are also both under 13, subject to a number of “safety factors”.

In an official report it is noted that the ¬paedophile would have to climb over the mum from his side of the bed to get to the girls – and would therefore wake her up.

County council officials who rubber-stamped the decision were also happy that the children could use a baby monitor to call for their mother if they needed to be let out to go to the toilet.

They allowed the child abuser to move into the family home in Devon only a few months after describing him as a “continuing risk” to the girls.

Details of the decision emerged after the children’s worried grandmother contacted the Sunday Mirror over her fears for their safety.

She said: “The alarm and the other so-called precautions to stop my granddaughters being abused are a load of rubbish.

“Since learning my daughter’s new husband was a paedophile I’ve tried to express my concerns to social ¬services.
