A hospital worker who lost his job after claims he posed for pictures wearing a patient's underwear is facing an investigation into theft allegations.

James John Turner, a 21-year-old nursing auxiliary in a geriatric ward at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, had his employment terminated by NHS Grampian.

A health board investigation into the photo allegations is said to have started when an official complaint was made last Wednesday.
