A man who murdered his first wife and tried to kill his second has been struck from the nursing register.

Malcolm Webster, 53, was jailed for a minimum of 30 years for murdering Claire Morris in Aberdeenshire in 1994.

Webster, from Surrey, was also found guilty of staging a similar attempt to kill a second bride in New Zealand, all to claim insurance pay-outs.

The Nursing and Midwifery Council panel found his fitness to practise was impaired.
