We were alerted about Narroway after a member of the public contacted UK Database (This website), a website set-up track the movements of criminals who have harmed children or young people.

Narroway, now running Star Wars specialist shop Hunter’s Toys in Teesside, was brought before the Nursing and Midwifery Council in 2010.

He faced allegations about his relationship with a teenage patient at the secure Westwood Centre, at West Lane Hospital, in Middlesbrough.

The Westwood Centre is a low-security mental health unit for young people aged between 12 and 18. Mr Narroway was working there when the teenager, known as patient A, was admitted to the centre in February 2008.

The tribunal heard he told the suicidal teenager to change her T-shirt in front of him, put his hands down her trousers and exposed himself to her.

He told her: “I’ve risked everything for this.”

He also hatched a plan to have sex with her, telling the girl they could go to the shower room and that if anyone came in he could pull up his trousers and say she was just blowing her nose.

The girl, referred to as Patient A, also said Narroway – then 38 – switched shifts to spend time with her

The girl had a history of suicidal behaviour and was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder due to physical and emotional distress when she was younger.

Nursing assistant Palkesh Darbar told the hearing: “Patient A said Mr Narroway had touched her private parts and showed her his private parts.”

The NMC panel found him guilty of misconduct and struck him off.

Narroway was convicted of assault in February 2009 for fracturing his then girlfriend’s arm for which he given a suspended prison sentence.

The former councillor for Ingleby Barwick was also cautioned in 2007 for common assault on a woman at his home
