Abuse review: Little Ted's nursery 'not safe' and 'isolated'

A Plymouth nursery where a worker sexually abused children "provided an ideal environment" for her to abuse, a report has found.

The review into abuse at Little Ted's nursery found that a lack of formal staff supervision was partly to blame.

Vanessa George, 40, from Plymouth, was jailed last year for a minimum of seven years after admitting abusing toddlers at the nursery and photographing it.

No other staff at Little Ted's were involved in the abuse.

Jim Gould, independent chair of the Plymouth Safeguarding Children Board, said that the nursery was "not able to provide a safe and positive environment" and that it was clear "personal relationships got in the way of good practice".
