A CHILDREN'S doctor has been struck off the medical register after he hid his £100,000-a-year salary across 12 bank accounts to avoid paying child support for his nine-year-old son.

Paediatrics specialist Dr Collen Nkomo, 40, lived in a luxury apartment and was earning up to £10,000 a month working as a locum GP and also looking after poorly youngsters at Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool.
Inquiries revealed the doctor was earning £115,000 over one 15-month period and had more than £126,000 being transferred across his six Halifax and six HSBC accounts during his work for various medical organisations. He subsequently admitted earning £30,000 in just three months.
Zimbabwe-born Nkomo, who lives in Altrincham, Greater Manchester, was last year given a 20-month prison sentence suspended for two years after he admitted fraud.
