    A senior council officer has been sacked for gross misconduct after his involvement in Nazi fetishism was exposed by a Sunday newspaper.

    Photos appeared of Gareth Mead, who was in charge of social housing and homelessness for Hammersmith and Fulham Council in south London, posing in Nazi regalia in what was said to be a gay sex website

    He also sent text messages to the site saying “turn on the furnaces for those Jewish boys” and “gas the wogs”, the Sunday Mirror revealed.

    Mr Mead had told the newspaper that he was “not a racist” and his activity was “a private fetish”.

    Geoff Alltimes, the council’s chief executive, 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 antisemitic content highlighted in the media coverage."
