Britain's worst female paedophile Vanessa George freed from prison

A notorious paedophile nursery worker who abused dozens of kids has been released from jail after just ten years behind bars, it has been reported.

Vanessa George, 49, was jailed indefinitely in 2009 and told to serve a minimum of seven years after taking photographs on her phone of her abusing toddlers at Little Ted’s Nursery in Plymouth.

Last week a Parole Board concluded the mum-of-two no longer posed a ‘significant risk to the public’ and would be released subject to a large exclusion order banning her from Devon and Cornwall.

News of her release today has sparked outrage from abuse victim’s families who said they begged for her to remain behind bars.

One dad, who still doesn’t know whether his young daughter was abused as George refused to name all of her victims, told the Sun Online: ‘If I see her I will kill her, all bets off. Even if my daughter wasn’t [one of the ones abused].

‘I was disgusted [by the verdict], The whole process from start to finish – even up to today – has been a mess.

‘She should never be released. We had no sleep at all last night.’

A dad who believes his child was sexually abused by the ex nursery worker told Victoria Derbyshire he was ‘disgusted’.

Slamming the decision on Twitter, Luke Pollard, MP for Plymouth, said many of her victims only found out through social media because the authorities failed to inform them

George will be subjected to ‘strict licence conditions’ including not being allowed to return to the West Country.

In an open letter to the people of Plymouth, chief probation officer Sonia Crozier said: ‘I share the disgust at the crimes committed by Vanessa George and I understand why the prospect of her release is so worrying to so many people, particularly in Plymouth where memories of her abuse are still vivid and frightening.

‘The fact she so callously exploited a position of trust to commit these crimes makes them all the more horrifying.

‘She will also never be allowed to work with children again and will be on the sex offenders’ register for the rest of her life.

‘If she breaches any of these conditions or if her probation officer thinks there is an increasing chance she might re-offend – she can be immediately recalled to prison.’

During George’s 2009 sentencing, Mr Justice Royce told her she had ‘plumbed new depths of depravity’ by abusing those in her care.

The ‘shockwaves’ of her maltreatment of babies and toddlers would be felt in every one of the country’s nursery schools, he added.

Although the self-styled ‘paedo whore mum’ has named some victims, George was accused of deliberately hiding information that would properly pinpoint those in the pictures she took.

Child protection officers visited 180 children thought to have had contact with George, who admitted taking up to eight pictures a day while on duty.
