Parents warned over baby abuser

- By Sian Hewitt

VICTIMS of Britain’s most prolific female paedophile say they have been warned not to take revenge on the woman who violated their children.

Vanessa George was released in October after being jailed in 2009 for sexually abusing at least 30 infants in her care at the Little Ted’s Nursery in Plymouth where she worked.

Since then protests have been staged outside the hostel in Birmingham where the 49-yearold is staying.

Now parents who fear their children were abused as babies by George have revealed how police have gone out of their way to protect the predator.

One mother, who cannot be named, said: “We were called into a room at the time and told how it was ‘likely’ our children had been sexually assaulted by this monster while they were in nursery. And now she’s been released, having shown no remorse, and we are the ones being watched and warned to behave properly.

“She’s always refused to tell us names of who she abused. She’s shown no remorse and yet us parents are the ones being warned not to be violent.”

A father, who also cannot be named as his child is believed to be one of George’s victims, added: “Back on that day we were called into a room and told it was likely our daughter had been one of those abused.

“She is 12 now and every day we have had to live with the fact that we put our baby in the hands of a paedophile. And still it is her being protected. It makes me sick.”

Parents say they received “words of advice” from officers warning against vigilante action against the paedophile.

George, who is banned from Plymouth, 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 given a life sentence and ordered to serve at least seven years.

Security has been tightened at the bail hostel where she is preparing for a new life after her release. Devon and Cornwall Police said they could not comment on their words of advice.
