Metro reports that a nurse lied about being a doctor on his CV and swindled the NHS out of almost £350,000 by claiming fake expenses.

Phillip Hufton pretended to have a PhD, a master’s degree and five other diplomas but in reality he only actually held a Bachelor of Nursing Degree.

Once employed as a doctor, he went on several imaginary business trips, faking his expenses and using the money to fund his lavish lifestyle for 17 months.

In one instance, he was found to have run up a £9,000 invoice bill for a fake work trip to refugee camps in Amman, Jordan, when he was actually holidaying in the US.
