A paramedic has been struck off for revenge porn after using his work email to send explicit images of a colleague.

Guy Tanner emailed colleagues and national newspapers links to images, movies and messages involving Colleague A from his London Ambulance Service account, the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) said.

He also sent the woman a threatening text message telling her to resign in September 2013, and issued her the same threat verbally.

Panel chair Manuela Grayson said: "He carried out a series of premeditated actions calculated to threaten and disgrace Colleague A along with her colleagues in full glare of the national media.

"This was serious misconduct demonstrating reckless disregard as to how his behaviour risked harming the reputation of the paramedic profession."

Mr Tanner was found guilty of serious misconduct and struck off the register.
