A police force paid a child rapist more than £10,000 for help during an investigation, it has emerged.
The conviction of a Tyneside grooming gang is the culmination of Operation Shelter - itself part of Operation Sanctuary, a long-running Northumbria Police investigation into the abuse of vulnerable girls and young women.
It has now emerged that during the course of the inquiry the force paid the convicted rapist - known as XY as he cannot be named for legal reasons - to act as an informant.
XY fell out with his police handler, making a series of damning allegations, including claims he had been told to plant drugs and take vulnerable girls to parties.
This led to a challenge to the court process, with the defence arguing his allegations fatally undermined the police case.
