Male nurse struck off over porn

A NURSE watched so much porn on his NHS laptop at work he slowed down computers at an entire hospital.

John Marie McCann was struck off after he was caught browsing adult websites at Dunoon Hospital in September 2010.

McCann's online activities caused slow internet access throughout the hospital, including in the X-ray department and video conferencing.

At a hearing of the Nursing Midwifery Council earlier this week, the nurse, who, paradoxically, worked with an addictions team, was barred from the profession.

McCann was not present at the hearing, but he submitted a letter saying: "I do not feel that I am currently fit to work as a registered nurse."
