Is this the most sinister Tinder profile ever?
A MOBILE app promising quick, no- stings sex at the swipe of a screen is bound to attract the immoral, the godless, the desperate and the deluded.
But Tinder also attracts the deranged.
And among the sex app’s estimated 50m users, surely none has a profile as sinister as that of Doug Campion.
While most Tinder users tell white lies on their profiles, claiming to own sports cars or to earn potloads of money, we assume unwaged Campion’s profile is 100% honest – because nobody would make this stuff up!
Campion, 49, writes: “Hello. My name is Brian. I live in StokeonTrent. I want a woman. The police arrested me once. But they proved nothing. My neighbours told lies. They heard nothing.
“I am safe to be with. I like long walks in the countryside, graveyards and the council recycling centre.
“You will be kind, obedient and have big busters like my mother. My mother is dead but I did not kill her. The dark is my friend. I am safe.”
Posing as a date and using a picture of a well- known actress on a phoney profile, we arranged to meet Campion at a central Manchester bar.
When our reporter identified himself, Campion leapt up and fled through a back entrance.
Sunday Sport last night passed our dossier on Campion to the relevant authorities.
