Preschools warned of paedophile blogger
12:31 CEST+02:00
The discovery of a blog about naked children and life as an employee at a Stockholm preschool has led city officials to take action.

All preschools in Stockholm have been notified and the blog has been reported to the police.

Stockholm city educational director Thomas Persson received an email from a concerned citized who informed him about the existence of the blog, Dagens Nyheter reports.

Persson in turn notified his colleagues and all of the preschools in Stockholm about the blog.

The author of the blog identified himself a paedophile and wrote that he works at a preschool.

“When you read the blog it's clear that it is about a preschool in Stockholm,” Carina Lundberg Uudelepp, deputy director of the City of Stockholm, told Aftonbladet.

Although it is difficult to know how much of the blog is true, officials are taking it seriously. Aftonbladet reported that content of the blog was deemed believable by school officials, who say it is likely the author works or has previously worked at an actual preschool.

It is also assumed that the man is blogging under a false name, and authorities hope to discover his true identity.
