So­cial worker ad­mits years of sex with client

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A SO­CIAL worker who had an af­fair with a “highly vul­ner­a­ble” client for more than four years has ad­mit­ted act­ing “un­ac­cept­ably and un­pro­fes­sion­ally”.

Christo­pher Brac­chi be­gan the sex­ual re­la­tion­ship with the mother of five while em­ployed by North Yorks County Coun­cil.

The woman, re­ferred to as ser­vice user A, was “highly vul­ner­a­ble” and suf­fered from a per­son­al­ity disorder, the Health Care Pro­fes­sions Coun­cil heard.

Brac­chi met the mother of five in 2007 when he be­came her so­cial worker and even­tu­ally be­gan a sex­ual re­la­tion­ship, the hear­ing was told.

He re­signed in Oc­to­ber 2013 fol­low­ing a probe.

In an email to the HCPC, Brac­chi ad­mit­ted he made “poor de­ci­sions” and ac­cepted all the al­le­ga­tions.

If his fit­ness to prac­tice is found to be im­paired he could be struck off.

The hear­ing con­tin­ues. THE star of one of the rudest LES­BIAN films ever made has been signed up to be­come a Bond girl!

French ac­tress Lea Sey­doux will play a de­li­cious bad­die in the new 007 flick, which starts film­ing next month.

The Paris-based star will meet fel­low cast mem­bers, led by Daniel Craig, Ralph Fi­ennes, Ben Whishaw and Naomie Har­ris, for a script re­hearsal in late Novem­ber.

Be­fore then, she will un­dergo a se­ries of cos­tume, make-up and cam­era tests so di­rec­tor Sam Men­des can de­ter­mine her “look”.

Ms Sey­doux has ap­peared in many French-lan­guage films – in­clud­ing the Cannes prize win­ner Blue Is The Warm­est Colour.

In it she played a lesbo art stu­dent who se­duces a teenage girl.

Some of the red-hot naked scenes – in­clud­ing RIM­MING, scis­sor­ing and oral sex – were so ex­plicit they had Lea, 29, ques­tion­ing her own sex­u­al­ity.

She said: “Of course I did. Me as a per­son, as a hu­man be­ing... it’s not noth­ing, mak­ing those scenes.

“Of course I ques­tion my­self. But I did not have any rev­e­la­tions.”

Sey­doux also ap­peared in Mis­sion Im­pos­si­ble: Ghost Pa­trol and Quentin Tarantino’s In­glou­ri­ous Bas­terds.

The Bond 24 sto­ry­line is ex­pected to follow on from 2012’s Skyfall, which smashed box of­fices world­wide.
