A man who took a picture of his son while they were out shopping has been accused of being a paedophile and threatened with arrest.
Kevin Geraghty-Shewan had taken four-year-old Ben to the Bridges Shopping Centre in Sunderland to spend £10 the boy had been given as a treat.
The dad told Sky News: “Ben spotted a children’s ride which had a train on it and wanted to have a go because he’s obsessed with trains.
“When he got on my wife suggested we take a picture of him.
“I took the picture on my phone and suddenly this security guard came up and told me it wasn’t allowed because I could be a paedophile.
