BRITAIN’S most notorious female paedophile Vanessa George has been granted parole because she no longer poses a ‘significant risk’ to children.
The self-styled ‘paedo mum’ used a mobile phone to picture herself abusing children at a nursery then shared the images on the internet.
She was jailed for a minimum of seven years in 2009 following the attacks in Plymouth.
But the 49-year-old will be released from jail soon after a Parole Board review was completed earlier this month.
A spokesman said the panel ‘carefully looked at a whole range of evidence’ and its decision was focused on whether a prisoner would represent ‘a significant risk to the public after release’.
‘This is done with great care and public safety is the number one priority,’ he added. Mother-of-two George abused children at the nursery where she had worked for three years until her arrest.
She was convicted at Bristol crown court after admitting seven sexual assaults and six charges of distributing and making indecent pictures of children.
At the time, Mr Justice Royce said her indeterminate jail time was ‘in effect, a life sentence’ to reflect the fact she had ‘plumbed new depths of depravity’.
