Baby's P's mother, Tracey Connelly is back in prison after she breached the terms of her licence by allegedly selling pornographic images of herself to people turned on by her notoriety.

The 34-year-old, who was jailed for a minimum of five years for allowing her partner and his brother to torture her 17-month-old son, Peter, to death, was released on parole in October 2013.

But she was returned to prison after the authorities suspected she had been uploading images of herself and trying to sell them online to people fascinated by her appalling crime.

She was arrested and recalled to prison for breaching the terms of her licence and will now have to appear before a new parole board hearing.

It is understood she is being held at HMP Styal, a women's prison in Cheshire.

A source told The Sun on Sunday: "Authorities believe she was uploading images of herself and trying to flog them - possibly to sick perverts getting a kick out of her notoriety.

"It doesn't get any more depraved that this. She clearly wasn't ready to be released into the community."

At the time of her initial release 18 months ago, even Connelly's own father, Richard Johnson said he believed his daughter should stay in prison for life.

He said at the time: "Who in their right mind would allow her out? It's a crazy, stupid decision. She hasn't served nearly enough time.

"She allowed her own son, my beautiful baby grandson, to be tortured to death. She's evil and should never ever be freed."

Following her release from Durham's Low Newton jail, Connelly was given a new name and a change of image in order to conceal her identity.

A spokesman for The Ministry of Justice said: "Offenders on licence are subject to strict controls and conditions and are liable to be recalled to prison if they breach them."

Connelly was indefinitely in 2009 and was ordered to be detained for a minimum of five years until "deemed no longer a risk to the public and in particular to small children".

Peter, or Baby P, as he was known initially, was just 17 months old when he was found dead in his cot at his mother's flat in Tottenham, north London.

He had suffered 50 separate injuries, including a broken back.

His abuse and injuries had been repeatedly missed by social workers and medical staff.

Connelly's boyfriend, Steven Barker, 41, was jailed for life for the Baby P and for raping a two-year-old girl.

His paedophile brother Jason Owen, 37, was also jailed indefinitely and ordered to serve three years minimum.

He was paroled in 2011 but sent back to jail after breaching conditions. He was then released again last year.
