Vanessa George police tapes

A warped paedophile who coaxed sick nursery worker Vanessa George into sexually abusing dozens of babies and toddlers could be freed within weeks.

Colin Blanchard, the ringleader of one of Britain’s most notorious child sex gangs, was handed an indeterminate term back in 2011.

He could soon be back on the streets after being told he would serve a minimum of nine years.

Twisted Blanchard, 52, convinced George to abuse 64 tots in her care over a number of years.

It has been confirmed that he will appear before a Parole Board on July 4 having been held at Category C HMP Wymott, near Leyland, Lancashire.

Colin Blanchard was said to be the ‘hub of the paedophile wheel’ before he finally faced justice in 2011

A spokesperson for the Parole Board said a panel will “carefully examine evidence” before making their decision.

Despite the monster possibly being free within two months, the authority insisted protecting the public is their number one priority.

They announced in a statement: “We can confirm the parole review of Colin Blanchard has been referred to the Parole Board by the Secretary of State for Justice and is following standard processes.

“A hearing is expected to take place in early July.

“Parole Board decisions are solely focused on what risk a prisoner could represent to the public if released and whether that risk is manageable in the community.

“A panel will carefully examine a huge range of evidence, including details of the original crime, and any evidence of behavioral change, as well as explore the harm done and impact the crime has had on the victims.

“Members read and digest hundreds of pages of evidence and reports in the lead up to an oral hearing.

“Evidence from witnesses including probation officers, psychiatrists and psychologists, officials supervising the offender in prison as well as victim personal statements are then given at the hearing.

“The prisoner and witnesses are then questioned at length during the hearing which often lasts a full day or more. Parole reviews are undertaken thoroughly and with extreme care.

“Protecting the public is our number one priority.”

Blanchard’s case was referred to the Parole Board three years ago by the Ministry of Justice.

Experts then judged him not ready for release without holding a hearing.

He was required to complete another course in jail designed to prevent re-offending.

The Ministry of Justice referred his case to be considered after he had completed his nine-year minimum sentence.

He convinced nursery worker George to commit the hideous attacks at Little Ted’s nursery in Efford, Plymouth.

She shared videos of her crimes with him and was jailed for seven years.

George released in September 2019 despite widespread fury across Britain.

She refused to tell police the names of all her 64 victims, leading to a decade of ‘hell’ for families.

George earned the grim title of Britain’s worst female paedo in 2009 after she was caged for taking the sick pictures of herself harming babies and toddlers.
