Colin Blanchard, the IT consultant who created and shared images of child sex abuse with nursery worker Vanessa George, could spend the rest of his life in jail for his role as the "hub" of a paedophile ring.
Blanchard was given an indeterminate sentence for the protection of the public after being described today by the sentencing judge, Mr Justice Royce, as "warped, wicked, dangerous, devious and manipulative".
