Luke Pollard MP Member of Parliament for Plymouth Sutton and Devonport
- It was announced today that serial child abuser Vanessa George has been released from prison
- She served ten years in prison, after she abused babies and toddlers at Little Ted’s nursery in Plymouth
- Luke Pollard has been leading the campaign to keep her behind bars
Commenting on Vanessa George’s release, Luke Pollard MP, who represents the constituency where she was active, said:
“I am disgusted that serial child abuser Vanessa George is being released early today.
“Vanessa George only served ten years and is being released early. The victims and their families now have a life sentence ahead of them of not knowing whether it was their child who was abused or not.
“Vanessa George chose not to end the suffering of these families or give them any certainty. She should not be released because she has not named her victims.
“The parole conditions mean she can never return to Plymouth, Devon or Cornwall. But she will have to settle somewhere and they need to have the resources to ensure she has no contact with children or can make contact with her victims.
“People I know in Plymouth share in my anger, frustration and disgust. I firmly believe that Vanessa George should be behind bars, not walking our streets. This is a dark day for British justice.”
