A housing boss revealed to be a secret Nazi sex fetishist has been sacked for gross misconduct after sending racist texts.
Gareth Mead, 44, was dismissed from his £90,000 job at Hammersmith and Fulham Council following a disciplinary hearing this afternoon (19).
Mead, who was in charge of social housing and homelessness, is said to have sent offensive texts fantasising about the Holocaust to men he met on the fetish scene.
Colleagues were oblivious to his shocking secret life until it was exposed in the Sunday Mirror.
The council's chief executive, Geoff Alltimes, said: "Councillors, managers and staff have been shocked, saddened and sickened by Mr Mead's admissions.
"The council has acted quickly and decisively following the grossly offensive racist and anti-Semitic content highlighted in the media coverage."
