Mother in call for 'Mark's Law'

PUBLISHED September 9, 2005

A bereaved mother has appealed to MSPs for a new law requiring the police and councils to tell people if a convicted sex offender is living in their area.

Margaret Ann Cummings, whose son Mark was murdered by a known sex offender in Glasgow last year, presented a 5,000-signature petition at Holyrood.
It calls for Mark's Law in memory of her eight-year-old son.
