Nursery worker paedophile and fellow perverts jailed

Paedophiles Vanessa George and Angela Allen have been given indeterminate sentences for public protection at Bristol Crown Court today.

Nursery worker Vanessa George was jailed indefinitely today after she admitted feeding the lust of a Facebook accomplice with sick pictures of children in her care.

George was obsessed with IT salesman Colin Blanchard, telling him she was his “paedo whore mum” and sending him eight pictures a week, Bristol Crown Court heard.

Mr Justice John Royce described the evidence as “chilling” as he heard how George and Blanchard discussed practices like rape via text.

In one message, George referred to herself and Blanchard as the “perfect paedo couple”.

George put her hand to her eyes as the facts of the case were read out in court, apparently shielding herself from the gaze of parents and her own husband.

George and former prostitute Angela Allen were sentenced at Bristol Crown Court for a string of sexual assaults and making and distributing indecent images of children.
