Facebook security measures criticised in Britain after Ashleigh Hall murder

Facebook was today accused of a “glaring failure” to implement advice on protecting children online after the conviction of a man for kidnapping, raping and murdering a teenager he ensnared using the social networking site.Peter Chapman was jailed for life – with a minimum term of 35 years – yesterday for killing Ashleigh Hall, who was 17. The 33-year-old convicted double rapist lured Ashleigh by creating a Facebook profile using the picture of a handsome teenager. Ashleigh’s body was found dumped in a farmer’s field near Sedgefield, County Durham, in October last year.
