Teacher arrested in child porn probe

June 10, 2009 at 7:30 PM   |   Comments

DEVON, England, June 10 (UPI) -- A preschool teacher in England has been charged with sexual assault and taking lewd images of children, officials said.

The Daily Mail reported Wednesday that Vanessa George, 39, was arrested after police received a tip from the public.

The newspaper said she was charged with four counts of sexual assault and three counts of making, possessing and distributing indecent images of children. The images were discovered on a cellular phone, the Daily Mail noted.

Officials said there may be hundreds of images stored on computer equipment confiscated from the school.

"We have been unable to identify any individual children and it is right to say that many of the images may never be identified," said Russ Middleton of Devon and Cornwall Police. "Our priority is to build up a close relationship with potential victims and focus on children contained within the images."
