Britain’s most notorious female paedophile Vanessa George is in a bail hostel just a six-minute walk from a nursery, it is claimed.
George, 49, a former nursery worker, was jailed for a minimum of seven years in 2009 after she sexually assaulted up to 30 babies and toddlers in her care at Little Ted’s nursery in Plymouth.
Vanessa George, 49, has been housed in a probation hostel in the Midlands just a six-minute walk from a nursery
She walked free from jail this week and has reportedly been put in a probation hostel costing up to £50,000 a year in the Midlands.
And the hostel is just 547 yards from a nursery and less than half a mile from a children’s club, according to The Sunday People.
Probation chiefs have imposed strict rules on her release and she is banned from schools, pools, social media and dating sites.
A source commented on the decision to house her so close to children and branded the move ‘outrageous’.
‘How could they do this – it’s the most disgusting possible. And it is every parent’s worst nightmare’, the source said.
‘This is a woman who worked in a nursery and abused her position.’
In July, despite outrage from her victims’ parents and MPs, a Parole Board panel ordered her release after she’d served 10 years in Bronzefield women’s prison, Ashford, Surrey.
George convinced the board to release her after having treatment to boost her ‘self-esteem’.
Following her release, a father who had a child at the nursery, told the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire programme that he was ‘disgusted’.
The former nursery worker swapped photographs of the abuse with other paedophiles she met online
George, who had been married for more than 20 years at the time she was arrested, took 124 obscene images of children on her mobile during a six-month period
In 2009, George admitted 13 sexual assault charges, but maintained a silence over the names of children she assaulted.
Child protection officers have visited 180 children thought to have had contact with George, and 21 families have taken up an offer of support.
George’s co defendant Angela Allen, who raped a girl of three, has already served the five-year minimum of her sentence imposed at the same time.
The ringleader of the paedophile gang, Colin Blanchard, will be eligible for parole next year after being jailed in 2011 for a minimum of nine years.
