A man has been charged with grooming following an undercover sting by self-styled 'paedophile hunters' at Kent's biggest shopping centre.
Homeless Mirza Mispa Beg, 29, was arrested at Bluewater on Sunday afternoon after being confronted in a car park by members of the group known as The Hunted One.
He has been remanded in custody to appear at Medway Magistrates’ Court today.
