A group of parents are calling on the UK’s worst female paedophile to tell them whether she abused their children.

Vanessa George, 50, was convicted on charges of sexual assault and making, possessing and distributing indecent images of children in 2009. She had been involved in a paedophile ring of at least five adults and had taken pictures of young children at a nursery where she worked.

George was released from prison last year, despite never revealing the names of the children she had attacked. A new law that could prevent prisoners from being released if they haven’t disclosed information passed the final stage in the Commons on Tuesday.

Parents of children at Little Ted’s Nursery, in Plymouth, where George worked have now told how desperate they are to know if they were among the abused. One dad said it was his ‘worst nightmare’ that his son could grow up having ‘horrific flashbacks’.

He told the Daily Star: ‘This is something which could affect us for the rest of our lives, but she has spent her time and can now start again. We just want to be put out of our misery. It’s the least she can do.’

Another mum said: ‘This whole time it seems like she has been protected over helping her victims. The system is broken and it only serves those who perpetrate.

‘My daughter is 14. She’s not even an adult yet, and yet that beast is out to live a life already. It makes me sick.’

George was was given an indeterminate sentence in 2009 and told she would serve at least seven years before being considered for release.

She was released in September last year after the Parole Board ruled she had ‘shown remorse’ and could be managed safely in the community.

The decision sparked fury among victims’ parents, and a protest was launched outside her accommodation, particularly as she was allowed to stay in close proximity to an after school kids club and nursery.

The Prisoners (Disclosure of Information About Victims) Bill will go forward for the approval from the Lords before receiving royal assent if no amendments are made.

Plymouth MP Luke Pollard said in the Commons this week: ‘[George] maintains a power over the victims by withholding the names. She will know the names of some of the children she abused and photographed and shared the images of.

Wherever she is in Britain at this point, she could help those families relieve part of their suffering and uncertainty by naming some of the children she abused.

‘She must know the names, she must know that naming the kids would enormously help the healing process and is something I appeal to her to do because for as long as she holds those names, those families will not have peace, and I think that’s a really important part.’
