BRITAIN’S worst female paedophile, Vanessa George was released from prison today.
She was jailed for abusing at least 30 children in her care at Little Ted’s nursery in Plymouth.
What did Vanessa George do?
The 49-year-old was jailed in 2009 for abusing at least 30 children in her care at Little Ted’s nursery in Plymouth.
The twisted abuser was part of the 2009 Plymouth child abuse case.
A paedophile ring involving at least five adults – including George – from different parts of England was cracked when one of the abuser’s colleagues found child pornography on his laptop.
Between late 2008 and early 2009, Vanessa George, Colin Blanchard, and Angela Allen met on Facebook and began sharing indecent images of children.
Police believe that they were in competition to produce the most perverted picture.
George began taking indecent images of babies and toddlers at the nursery where she worked, and also shared an indecent photograph of her own teenage daughter.
A fourth member of the ring, Tracy Lyons, a mother of nine from Portsmouth, Hampshire, pleaded guilty in March 2010 to assault of a child by penetration, sexual assault of a child under 13, causing a child under 13 to engage in sexual activity and three offences of distributing indecent photographs of a child.
A fifth member of the ring, Tracy Dawber, a care worker from Southport, in Merseyside, was found guilty of one count of sexually abusing a baby in October 2010.
How was she caught?
The ring was cracked when a horrified colleague of Colin Blanchard turned on his laptop to discover child abuse images of babies and children.
The colleague reported the findings to Greater Manchester Police, who searched the computer and found texts and emails between himself, Vanessa George and Angela Allen.
During the probe child protection officers visited 180 children thought to have had contact with George, who admitted taking up to eight sick pictures a day while on duty.
George, who worked in Plymouth and is now banned from the city, pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual assault by penetration and two counts of sexual assault by touching.
She also admitted making, possessing and distributing indecent images.
She was ordered to serve at least seven years in prison.
Other members of the ring were also jailed.
