Basking in the sunshine, a grin across her face, this is the first photograph of Britain’s worst female paedophile Vanessa George since her controversial release from jail two weeks ago.

The 49-year-old abused up to 30 babies and toddlers while working at Little Ted’s Nursery in Plymouth.

George also photographed herself abusing the children and sent the images to other perverts.

The mother of two daughters, she was jailed indefinitely in 2009 and told to serve a minimum of seven years.

In July, a Parole Board panel cleared her for release, saying she was no longer a ‘significant risk to the public’ despite pleas to keep her behind bars.

George was released last month – much to the dismay of families whose children may also have been abused.

The paedophile has always refused to name her victims, leaving many distraught parents in limbo.

Luke Pollard, the Labour MP for Plymouth, Sutton and Devonport, who has supported many of the affected families, said the photos would upset them.

‘The families concerned are facing a life sentence as she spends time relaxing in the sunshine,’ he said.

‘Vanessa George shouldn’t be allowed out of prison until her victims have reached adulthood as a bare minimum. Many of them are now around 12, 13 or 14. The fact she is out is a disgrace when the families are still suffering.

‘I’m concerned that, by not naming the victims, she hasn’t shown any remorse.’

George is barely recognisable in the photographs, having lost weight in jail. She had previously weighed 18 stone.

Following her release from Send Prison in Surrey, she is living at a bail hostel in Birmingham, preparing for a new life.

But fellow residents at the probation premises had no idea who George was as she swapped jokes in a courtyard.

A source told The Sun on Sunday: ‘For the first few days, she was warned to stay on site. No one had a clue who she was until a few days in.

‘She spent a lot of time in the yard outside when it was warm, lapping up the sunshine and laughing and joking.’ The source added: ‘She didn’t come across as the type who’s too troubled by what she was banged up for.’

The photos show that her hair is now a natural mousey blonde. And she looks relaxed, wearing a navy blue top, grey shorts and black slip-on shoes.

Following her release from prison, the mother of one victim wrote a heartbreaking open letter to George. She told how her crimes had left her family with a ‘legacy of pain’.

The mother said her child, who has had to have counselling, is aged 13 but still wets the bed and has never had a sleepover at a friend’s house. ‘It’s not fair that you get to move on now and start a fresh life and we are left to continue suffering,’ she added.

Even George’s own family say that she should not have been released. One member, who did not want to be named, told the Daily Mail: ‘It might have been easier to just lock her up and throw away the key. She’s clearly not a decent member of society.’

Another added: ‘There are so many people down here who feel very strongly about what she did, it’s no wonder they are stopping her from coming back to Devon.

‘I’m not sure she’s even served enough time for what she did.’
