A UK woman has been charged following an investigation that saw three other people including nursery worker Vanessa George admit child sex offences, police have said.

Tracy Lyons, (pictured left) 39, from Portsmouth, was arrested after a multi-force police inquiry which involved Little Ted’s Nursery, in Plymouth.

Lyons, who is reportedly a mother of seven and pregnant, appeared before magistrates in Portsmouth on Saturday, said Hampshire police.

She was charged with the sexual abuse of a child, taking an indecent image of a child, and distributing indecent images of a child.

The arrest followed information from Greater Manchester Police, who investigated Colin Blanchard, 39, from Rochdale. He was a member of a paedophile ring which included George, 39, from Plymouth, and Angela Allen, 39, from Nottingham. The three will be sentenced at Bristol Crown Court next month for 37 child sex offences.

Lyons was remanded in custody and will appear in court again on January 18.

The news came as tapes from George’s police interviews showed her claiming to have asked Blanchard to “put a ring on her finger” in return for images.

Transcripts show her suggesting – perhaps in jest – that marriage to Blanchard was a motive for her actions.

George, who worked at Little Ted’s Nursery, also said she knew the abuse was “vile” and “disgusting”. But George, whose husband Andrew took an overdose after her crimes were revealed, refused to name or identify any of her child victims.

On the tapes, released to BBC Inside Out for the South West, George claims Blanchard urged her to take indecent images after they met via Facebook. She suggests her continued complicity was partly to keep his attention.
