Torbay nurse touched patient's bottom
BBC News Online
A nurse has been struck off for "sexually motivated conduct" towards a patient at Torbay hospital.
Rodwell Ndoro was working at the hospital in March 2016, when he kissed the 29-year-old on the lips, as well as administering a suppository without her consent and inappropriately touching her lower back and bottom.
The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) also found he had failed to declare a serious health condition to his employers for six years, and continued to work after being suspended.
The victim told the NMC in her witness statement, that at one occasion she was "wiggling (her) bottom" as she was in a lot of pain. Mr Ndoro said: "If you could twerk, I'd take you to Zimbabwe with me."
In response she said: "I can't twerk, I'm not a very good dancer."
The NMC found the comments to be inappropriate and they crossed professional boundaries.
A total of 17 charges were proved and Mr Ndoro has 28 days to appeal.
The jury of six men and six women has been deliberating for almost 18 hours.
On Thursday, the judge Mark Horton told them they should try to reach verdicts on which they are all agreed, but they can either convict or acquit on any charges on which at least 10 of them are agreed.
Mr Howeson is alleged to have indecently assaulted one man whilst second in command of HMS Cleopatra in 1985.
Six of the alleged indecent assaults date from the early 1990s when Mr Howeson was executive director of the Plymouth Area Groundwork Trust Charity.
Mr Howeson has pleaded not guilty to all 12 charges.
A four-year-old girl has been taken to hospital after being hit by a car in Plymouth, police have said.
It happened on Efford Road at about 11:30.
The girl was taken to the city's Derriford Hospital as a precaution, Devon and Cornwall Police added.
Then road remains blocked between Old Laira Road and Higher Efford Road.
