Paedophile to return to UK

A British-born paedophile is being deported back to the UK on Friday.

Robert Excell, 66, has been released from prison in Perth, Western Australia and is being returned to Britain.

Excell, who has spent nearly forty years behind bars, is being released from prison in Perth on the grounds of ill health. The condition of his release was that he would return to the UK. He had emigrated to Australia as a child, but never became a citizen.

Excell was jailed in 1965 for an attack on a seven-year-old boy. He was paroled three times, but re-offended on each occasion.

Police will meet Excell on his return and his name will be placed on the sex offender’s register.

Excell had been due to be deported back to Britain in March. However, his return was delayed while an investigation into rape claims made against him took place.
