    The social networking website MySpace has reported a four-fold increase in the number of convicted sex offenders using its service.
    The company found more than 29,000 convicted sex offenders in the United States had profiles on MySpace - up from a figure of 7,000 given in May.

    MySpace said it was pleased it had identified and removed the profiles of the offenders.

    More than 80 million people have registered a MySpace page. News Corp bought the site for $580m last year.
