Warning over messaging app after sex offender targets teen

Last week, a British serial sex offender was jailed for four years after attempting to get a New Zealand teenager to send videos of herself performing sexual acts.

Wolverhampton man Gavin Rhodes, in his 30s, was banned from using computers to contact any girl under 16, but he used the Kik messaging app on his girlfriend's computer to contact the 14-year-old Kiwi.
