(Newser) – Shouting parents pounded on and hurled bottles at a van carrying a British daycare teacher charged with distributing child porn, reports the Guardian. Photos found in Vanessa George's home showed children as young as infants being sexually assaulted, according to law enforcement authorities. Parents lined up for hours to confront the teacher at a court appearance. They shouted as the van later rushed her from the courthouse, then ran down the street to attack the vehicle. Two men were arrested in the attack.

Inside the courtroom, parents sobbed as they heard details of the charges against George, 39. Police are still attempting to identify the children in the photos, but believe many were taken at the nursery school were George worked. George's family is under police protection. "Myself, my two children and family have been shocked by the information and events of the past three days," George's husband said in a statement.
