The paedophile-hunting group Predator Exposure apprehended a man in Leeds shortly before 11am on Sunday as people across the country observed a silence to mark the 100th anniversary of Remembrance Sunday.

In footage that shows a 46-year-old man being seized in Hunslet, the group tell the man: "Right, just be quiet for the silence - two minutes.

As the man begins to moan, one member of the group can then be heard saying: “Respect. Respect. I'm telling you now - shut it.”

The man then cries during the silence, before being told: “Right, first of all, we're Predator Exposure, we just exposed your fucking arse.”

The moment of respect came after they lured the man ito meet what he believed was an 11-year-old girl at a McDonald’s. After going into the fast food outlet to buy his would-be victim a Happy Meal, he instead found himself snared by the vigilantes.

West Yorkshire Police confirmed they had arrested a man on suspicion of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity.
