A CARER who once fractured a baby's skull has been struck off after a brutal campaign of abuse against the tot and his former partner. 

Michael Finlay, a former Quarriers worker, was taken off the Scottish Social Services Council's register today after a hearing. 

The panel imposed its most serious sanction against the thug, from Johnstone, who was caged in 2019 for a string of offences against a baby girl and get mother.

We reported previously how Glasgow Sheriff Court heard Finlay would "lose control" and yell at the baby to "shut up" when she cried.

Prosecutor Mark Allan said: "Injuries to the child are attributed to pushing as well as shaking her uncontrollably.

"Consultants say the injuries sustained were non accidental."

The Social Services Council panel said there was "no evidence" to show Finlay was aware of the seriousness of his evil crimes and said he had "engaged in a pattern of unacceptable and concerning" behaviours towards his former partner and her child, identified only as ZZ and YY, respectively in the hearing documents.

Finlay was also said to have bruised the girl on Christmas morning 2017 after he held her "too tight".

The court heard he Finlay inflicted "blunt force trauma" to cause the skull fracture.

He later could not explain where a lump on her head had come from.

The panel also "could take no comfort" that he would not pose a risk to the public and service users if he was allowed to stay on the register.
