In 2001, after being released from prison, child killers John Venables and Robert Thompson – now aged 35 – were given new identities which are protected by a court order.
However, in the years after being released for the murder of James Bulger, John Venables has been caught with child abuse material twice.
In 2010, he was sent back to prison after being found with 57 indecent images of children. In November last year, he was found with a further 1170 images.
The Guardian reports he was subsequently jailed for three years and four months after admitting to possessing a paedophile manual and surfing the darkweb for child abuse material.
In an interview on Good Morning Britain, James Bulger‘s father, Ralph Bulger, said he believed the courts must expose Venables’ new identity to make sure “other people are safe”.
