A City worker at a top London bank has been suspended following an apparent email 'confession' by him describing a sex act with his best friend's ex.
Trevor Luxton of has been suspended on full pay while his company, Credit Lyonnais, investigates the email.
In the mail someone claiming to be Luxton describes how a friend's ex-girlfriend performed a sex act on him while he spoke to his "bored" partner on the telephone.
According to the email Luxton sat at home with "a beer in one hand, remote in the other [and] West Ham on the box" while the girl performed the sex act.
The email signed off: "Am I the worst boyfriend in the world or what?"
Those who received the email forwarded it to their friends in what some called a bid to "nail the dirty love rat".
But in one of the messages attached to the email Luxton denied writing the story.
In a statement Credit Lyonnais said: "Trevor Luxton has been suspended on full pay and will be the subject of an internal investigation about abuse of our email policy, which is taken very seriously."
