Plymouth MP Luke Pollard says he is “disgusted” by the release of notorious paedophile Vanessa George.

George, 49, was jailed indefinitely in 2009 and ordered to serve a minimum of seven years for abusing toddlers at Little Ted's Nursery in Plymouth, Devon.

The Parole Board ruled earlier this month that George no longer poses a significant threat to the public - although she is under "strict licence conditions" and banned from entering Devon and Cornwall.

Mr Pollard, who represents Plymouth Sutton and Devonport, said George’s release represented a “dark day for British justice”.

I’m frankly disgusted that Vanessa George will be able to walk the streets from today onwards.
