A BARNSLEY dentist has been struck off - after he told a nurse his 'magic tongue' could cure her intimate medical condition.

Fadi Sukaria's career was ended after the General Dental Council heard he repeatedly groped his colleague and made sexually explicit comments while they were working for Primecare Oral Health Services on Sackville Street, Barnsley.

When Sukaria heard Nurse A was suffering from cystitis, he said: "I have a magic tongue to make it better."

The panel found he had also asked if she had any 'rude' photos or videos on her phone, stroked her breasts, groped her bottom, bit her arm and asked her if she had ever been raped.

Sukaria, originally from Syria, denied all the charges against him.
