This caller phoned Andrew Castle to claim that users of the gay dating app Grindr had reported Stephen Port to police but alleges that nothing was done about it.
LBC Listener's Chilling Brush With Serial Killer Stephen Port
Kirk tells his story of chatting to serial killer Stephen Port and coming dangerously close to meeting up with him.
Andrew was talking about the case of killer Stephen Port, who met his victims through Grindr, when Kirk called in. He lived close to Stephen Port and said he had come across Port's profile a number of times and even chatted to him.
But although he would talk about meeting up with Port, Kirk never went through with it.
"I suppose it's a blessing in disguise," he said. "I was having a chat with him because I was possibly going to arrange to go and have some fun.
"I would've just gone there and had fun."
But Kirk believes it was his lack of interest in drugs that might have saved his life, with Port more interested in victims he could drug.
