A source said: ‘It seems a really unsuitable place to house him. There’s three primary schools just a stone’s throw away and two nurseries nearby.’
Rebecca Eastwood, whose sister Lynda Mann was his first victim, told the newspaper: ‘Why has he been placed near a number of schools?
‘I just hope the pictures will mean people will now be able to be on their guard.’
Pitchfork became the first man convicted of murder on the basis of DNA evidence in 1988 after admitting two murders, two rapes, two indecent assaults and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.
He was freed last Wednesday, with the Parole Board facing a furious backlash and government challenge over its decision.
A Ministry of Justice spokesman said: ‘Public safety is our top priority, which is why he is subject to some of the strictest licence conditions ever set and will remain under supervision for the rest of his life.
‘If he breaches these conditions, he faces an immediate return to prison.’
