• Vanessa George, who abused babies and toddlers in Plymouth, has been released from prison early
• Luke Pollard has been campaigning to stop the release, and has asked the Prime Minister to meet the families
• Boris Johnson agreed to meet the families of Vanessa George’s victims in the House of Commons last night
Prime Minister Boris Johnson has agreed to meet with the families of serial-child abuser Vanessa George’s victims, after he was asked to do so by Luke Pollard MP.
Vanessa George was sent to prison for sexually abusing babies and toddlers at Little Ted’s nursery where she worked in Plymouth. She was released from prison early next week.
On Boris Johnson’s first appearance in the House of Commons, Mr Pollard asked if Johnson would personally step in, which he did not. Vanessa George was then released during the unlawful prorogation of parliament.
When he appeared in Parliament last night, Luke Pollard:
“could the Prime Minister give one good thing and agree to meet the families of the victims of Vanessa George so we can prevent that ever happening again and keep people like Vanessa George behind bars?”
The Prime Minister replied, “I will certainly undertake to meet the families”.
Luke Pollard, MP for Plymouth Sutton and Devonport where the nursery was, has been leading the campaign to stop her release. He has been listening to families, has held a debate in parliament and called on the Home Secretary to reopen the investigation.
