A female nursery worker has been jeered and spat at when she appeared in court charged with sexual assault and making and distributing child abuse images.
Vanessa George, who worked at the Little Ted's nursery in Plymouth, was remanded in custody amid angry scenes in the city's magistrates' court.
George, 39, of Douglass Road, Plymouth, faces three counts of sexually assaulting a girl under 13 and one count of sexually assaulting a boy under 13.
She also faces three separate counts of making, possessing and distributing indecent images of children.
The court heard the charges range from January 2007 to this month.
George, wearing a white T-shirt and black trousers, spoke only to confirm her name and address. She entered no pleas, no application for bail was made and she will now appear at Plymouth Crown Court on September 21.
She was jeered and hissed by people in the public gallery as she emerged into the court, and when the charges were read out, parents cried and yelled and one man ran from the court in tears.
