So after a basic google search of his name, Gavin Benit, I found the following.
|A basic google search of the name 'gavin benit'|
|From Oldham Evening Chronicle|
Here is where the twitter account comes in. Here's the tweet he madein February 2011, which is seven months before the Oldham article was published stating that he was now 'of Colwyn Bay'. So sometime during the spring / summer of 2011 this English convicted paedophile was allowed to be rehomed in Wales.

After posting about the BBC coverage on twitter someone referred me to the Daily Post article. If you think the above is bad then it's about to get a whole lot worse.

So now instead of the story being about a convicted English paedophile who has been dumped in Wales only to go on and rape another school girl the story is now about a paedophile 'from Rhyl'.
So to answer my initial question, "when is an English paedo not an English paedo?" When it's the Daily Post doing the reporting, that's when.
Edit - 27th January 2014
I wasn't surprised to find several visits to the site from the Trinity Mirror Group (the London based owners of the Daily Post) to my site after posting about them. I had several hits from the BBC after posting about their recent news black out. It's a shame though that they haven't left a comment on the page to explain their deliberate misinformation.
