WALSH-ATKINS: DIRECTOR DENIES TAX FRAUD PLOT

BOLTON; MANCHESTER; BILLERICAY, ESSEX; CLAPHAM, ELTHAM, SOUTH LONDON; HAMPSTEAD, TOTTENHAM, NORTH LONDON; UCKFIELD, EAST SUSSEX; ELTHAM, SOUTHEAST LONDON The director of a film exposing wrongdoing in the tabloid press has denied plotting to swindle millions of pounds from the taxman. Chris Walsh-Atkins, 37, won critical acclaim for Starsuckers, which saw newspapers tricked into publishing bogus stories about stars including the late Amy Winehouse, Pixie Geldof and Guy Ritchie. The Guardian writer gave evidence to the Leveson Inquiry into press standards, during which a 30 minute excerpt of his film was shown. Walsh-Atkins and Terence Potter - one of the film's financial backers - are accused with seven investment bankers and four others of allegedly taking part in a sophisticated five-year tax scam. The 'complex film scheme' allegedly enabled the investment bankers to submit bogus tax returns to claim tax relief on losses between January 2007 and February 2012.

MANSOOR KASSIM: CROOKED VIAGRA DOCTOR THROWN OUT OF THE PROFESSON

CAERPHILLY A doctor who claimed he forged prescriptions for Viagra claiming he was too 'embarrassed' to see his GP has been struck off. Dr Mansoor Kassim, 37, was given a suspended sentence in January after he admitted theft, fraud and forgery over the scam to obtain the erectile dysfunction drug. The £45k a year doctor started stealing prescriptions on his second day of work at Ystrad Fawr Hospital, near Caerphilly, which he then took to Newport pharmacies. Staff became suspicious of the bogus forms, which contained details of non-existent patients and doctors, because they were from a hospital department where the drug would not usually be required. Kassim, who was given a post at the Maidstone Hospital after his conviction, was struck off the medical register after a two-day hearing in Manchester.
