‘HE’S A BEAST’ Gordon Japp, convicted Shotts sex offender

AN ARMY of cops were forced to swarm into a Lanarkshire town to calm raging locals protesting against a paedophile who dodged jail.

Footage captured in Shotts shows furious residents screaming “put him down” and “he’s a beast” as armed officers arrived on the scene.

Gordon Japp, 32, avoided jail in February after cops found indecent images of children on his mobile phone.

Just months previously, he had been placed on the sex offenders register for an unknown offence.

Officers stood with arms folded as crowds booed their arrival, “disgusted” at the level of manpower “for a beast”.

The crowd was understood to be around 100 strong at the time.

People could be seen gathering in the street while a heavy police presence stood watch.

Vans, squad cars and scores of officers can be seen in the footage.

It’s understood Japp was moved from his current address by cops following the protest.

A resident added: “Shotts community were peaceful and happy that something was getting done about this beast.”

And Police Scotland confirmed that there were no arrests as a result of the large gathering.

A spokesperson said: “Officers attended and the incident was resolved.”
