A male nurse at the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital has been struck off after he was found to have indecent images of young female patients lying on hospital trolleys.

Police discovered a disk with the images at the home of Kuljeet Drubra, a staff nurse in the Accident and Emergency department of the hospital, after he was arrested on a separate matter.

Last year Drubra was convicted at Ipswich Crown Court on charges of voyeurism, possessing 30 indecent images of children and possession of extreme pornography.

He was sacked for gross misconduct.

Norfolk hospital cancer appeal launched

Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital's NHS Foundation Trust has launched an appeal to raise £600,000. The money will be used to treat more cancer patients with a type of radiotherapy which reduces treatment times and also means some patients can be treated closer to home.

The money raised through the Targeted Radiotherapy Appeal will also be used to reconfigure some of the existing rooms in the Colney Centre and to provide state-of-the-art facilities for people undergoing internal radiotherapy.

The new facilities will also allow more patients to benefit from the treatment.
