Vanessa George, 49, of Plymouth, Devon, was jailed for a minimum of seven years in 2009
Nursery paedophile Vanessa George will be released from prison after convincing a parole board that she no longer poses a 'significant risk' to children.
Vanessa George, 49, of Plymouth, Devon, was jailed for a minimum of seven years in 2009 after taking 64 pictures of herself harming babies and toddlers at the Little Ted's nursery.
She was said to have 'plumbed new depths of depravity' by abusing children in her care and was refused parole in May 2017 after serving the minimum seven years of her sentence.
But the Parole Board has now said she should be released after a review earlier this month. George has been behind bars at HMP Send near Guildford, Surrey.
George, publicly disowned by her two daughters, was divorced by her husband Andrew while in jail and has reverted to her maiden name, Vanessa Sylvia Marks.
Neither Andrew, 51, nor the girls knew of her secret life, and he fears she will have 'manipulated' parole board members and she still poses a risk on the outside.

He insisted he was a 'broken man' and would bear the mental scars of her crimes
