THERE are 89 registered sex offenders living on the Isle of Wight, according to newly published figures.

The figures, which were measured on March 31 this year, are contained in the latest Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA) annual report.

The organisation, which consists of police, probation and the prison service, monitors and supports registered sex offenders, and other violent and dangerous offenders, when they have left prison.

There were a total of 1,216 registered sex offenders in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, an increase of five per cent on the previous year.

During 2008-2009 two people were charged with serious further offences which carry a maximum penalty of 14 years in prison or more.

One man, who was charged with rape, was found not guilty and the other, charged with indecent assault on a man, was sentenced to a further year in prison.
