Fake nurse pleads guilty to theft and fraud

A bogus nurse who vaccinated more than a thousand children and carried out hundreds of tests on women - today pleaded guilty to theft and fraud.

Denice Stewart was arrested after being allowed to work - unsupervised - at four GP practices in Medway in Kent over four years. She was not qualified, but employed deception to pretend she was.

The former healthcare worker was employed as a registered nurse, after producing an NHS identity code not backed with a photo. She will be sentenced next month. Derek Johnson reports from Maidstone Crown Court.
