Midlothian is now Da Vinci Code rapist Robert Greens’ “permanent home”, agencies responsible for monitoring him have confirmed.
The announcement comes after Greens’ return to the county prompted the delivery of a petition to the Scottish Parliament on Monday.
Signed by 1500 people, it called for “appropriate action” to be taken to move the sex offender “outwith the region”.
Around 600 protesters marched through Newtongrange on Monday evening after it emerged that Greens, jailed for 10 years in 2006 for the rape of a teenager near Rosslyn Chapel, had been housed in a semi-rural area on the outskirts of the village.
