A group of residents in Midlothian have started a campaign to evict a rapist they believe is living in their community.
Robert Greens, 33, was released last week from a ten-year prison sentence for raping a 19-year-old Dutch student.
Residents say they have seen the sex attacker in Dalkeith and want the council to move him.
Greens attacked the student near Rosslyn Chapel, Midlothian in 2005. The victim was left so badly injured witnesses thought she had been in a car crash.
On Friday, a group of around 100 residents with placards started their protest outside the flats they believe the rapist is living in. They then moved to the headquarters of Midlothian Council where they met with the head of the housing for the council.
Earlier, the local authority said they could not comment on individual cases.
A spokesman said: "Public safety is of paramount importance, and we are working closely with our partner agencies to ensure that Scottish Government guidance relating to the risk management of sex offenders is followed.
"Our Multi Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA) are in place to make sure that the protection of children, vulnerable adults and other victims are key in our approach to dealing with sex offenders who present a risk to the community.
"There are robust processes and procedures in place to manage sex offenders, but we cannot comment on individual cases."
