Nursery Paedophile Who Sexually Assaulted Young Children Is Eligible For Parole From Today

Nursery paedophile Vanessa George who sexually assaulted children and took indecent photos of them for her lover is eligible for parole from today.

Vanessa George, now aged 45, will need to convince a parole board she is no longer a danger to the public .

George worked at Little Teds nursery in Efford, Plymouth, until her arrest on June 9, 2009 on suspicion of sexually assaulting a number of pre-school children in her care.

She was also suspected of taking indecent photographs of them and sending them to her online lover, Colin Blanchard in Greater Manchester.


On the face of it, George was a lively, bubbly and popular nursery worker – but beneath the facade was a callous, bullying, paedophile who openly boasted of her sexual conquests with men.

In all she admitted to a total of seven sexual assaults of young children and six counts of distributing and making indecent pictures of children.

She was sentenced alongside Blanchard and his other online-lover, Angela Allen of Nottingham at Bristol Crown Court on December 15, 2009.

While some colleagues called her "the life and soul of the party" others described her as "horrible".

Earlier this year it was revealed George would be eligible for parole after December 15 – today.

 A source at Plymouth's Probation Service told the Plymouth Herald at the time prison was "extremely stressful and debilitating" and for those serving long terms changed people "dramatically" over the years.

In addition, they said: "The chances of George being given plastic surgery to change her appearance is extremely remote – it's not even worth thinking about.

"It's also likely she would be resettled a long way from Plymouth.

"It's almost certain she'll be banned from ever returning, for the sake of her victims."

During her sentencing Judge Mr Justice Royce said he wanted the parents and the media to recognise that while he was passing the indeterminate sentence of imprisonment for public protection of seven years, "it is, in effect, a life sentence".

He said the case had caused "widespread revulsion and incredulity" and had "rocked the city of Plymouth" with the shockwaves extending to every nursery school in the country.
