Evil baby rapist at kids’ funfair


BLOATED baby rapist Tanya French laughed as she enjoyed a trip to a funfair — next to children unaware of her evil past.

The monster was jailed for her role in the sex abuse of a 12-week-old girl she was supposed to be minding.

But The Sun can reveal how French, 26, now revels in her freedom by relaxing among kids without any official supervision.

She served only 30 months in prison and has already been recalled at least once for breaking strict parole conditions.

Yet she looked carefree as she mingled with unsuspecting families during a weekend away near Burnham-on-Sea, Somerset.

French — who lives under a new identity — spent two nights staying at a caravan park with her parents and other relatives.

On the second day she was driven to a nearby amusement park where she paid for a fistful of 50p ride tokens.

She sampled the Terror Castle, Roller Coaster, Astro Storm and Disco Fever — a high-speed white knuckle experience.

She also spent £2.50 for a seat on the X Factory beside a long row of kids.

Last night a source said: “Most people think she should still be locked up, not enjoying days by the seaside.”

French and lover Alan Webster, now 46, sickened Britain in 2006 when it emerged they had repeatedly raped a baby girl they were minding for her mother in Hatfield, Herts.

French was sent to a young offenders institution while Webster was jailed for life with a minimum tariff of just six years.

Babysitters jailed for raping 12-week-old baby


Two babysitters have been jailed for raping a 12-week-old child and taking pictures of the abuse.

Alan Webster, 40, was jailed for life after pleading guilty at St Albans Crown Court to rape, indecent assault, permitting indecent images to be taken of a child and making indecent images in February and March 2004.

His girlfriend Tanya French, 19, was jailed for five years and given an extended licence period of five years after admitting the same charges.

Webster was also found guilty of indecently assaulting a 14-year-old girl who was a regular visitor to the home he shared with French in Hatfield, Herts.

The mother of the baby, who was introduced to French by a friend, initially refused the couple’s offer to babysit.

But as a single mother she needed help to look after her child when she moved home and needed to decorate, the court heard.

The mother was unaware of the abuse until detectives visited her home after finding photographs detailing the horrific abuse at Webster’s home.

Sentencing Webster, Judge Findlay Baker said: “These offences were committed against the most vulnerable victim it is possible to imagine – a little baby.

“Much of what you did was photographed so you had a record of yourself living out your depraved fantasies.

Breach of trust

Sentencing French, he said: “It seems clear to me that you did not shrink away from the acts in which you joined. Rather, you keenly looked forward to them.

“In your case, these offences are aggravated by the breach of trust placed in you by the baby’s mother and of course by the child, albeit unknowingly.

“However, I have to accept you are to some extent a victim yourself.

“Having come under his malign influence you were to some extent corrupted by him and shut your eyes to the fact that what you were doing was evil.”

The offences came to light after Hertfordshire Police were alerted by international law enforcers of concerns that Webster had downloaded about 7,000 indecent images from the internet.

Officers executed a search warrant at a house in Hatfield on July 26 last year and found a photograph album containing images showing Webster and French committing acts of abuse.

Webster admitted four charges of rape, five indecent assaults, two charges of permitting indecent images to be taken of children and two counts of making indecent images of children relating to the abuse of the baby.

He also pleaded guilty to a separate charge of indecent assault in relation to the 14-year-old and seven offences of possessing child abuse images.

French admitted one charge of rape, four indecent assaults, two charges of permitting indecent images to be taken of children and two counts of making indecent images of children.
