Baby P's mum Tracey Connelly has been moved out of her bail hostel to start a new life in a popular tourist town.

The woman who allowed her infant son Peter to be tortured to death moved into her own home just six months after her release from jail.

She has been relocated from the half-way house in northern England to a town where it is hoped she can find work.

Until she gets a job, she will receive housing benefit of about £400 a month, Jobseeker's Allowance of £72.40 a week and emergency grants of about £750 to decorate and furnish her flat.

A probation source told the Mirror: "She wanted out of the bail hostel and it was decided it was time for her to go. She is hundreds of miles away from where she was, which should increase her chances of not being recognised."

Probation officers will continue to supervise Connelly. Connelly's son Peter was found with horrific injuries at her North London flat in August 2007.

She denied knowing who had injured the tragic 17-month-old but admitted causing or allowing the death of a child. She served six years behind bars.

Her then boyfriend Steven Barker and his paedophile brother Jason Owen were also convicted of causing or allowing Peter's death. Barker, 41, was jailed for 12 years for his 'major role' in the horrific crime.

Owen, 37, was locked up indefinitely with a minimum three-year term – later changed to a fixed six-year term. He was released in August 2011, but later recalled to prison.
