A man has admitted impersonating a nurse at a Glasgow hospital.

Lee Woods, 28, wore NHS clothing and a badge at Queen Elizabeth University Hospital between March and July 2023.

Court papers state Woods conducted himself in a disorderly manner and repeatedly attended the hospital.

The charge says that he was not an employee.

Woods also repeatedly attended the resuscitation and children's areas while wearing the clothing.

It is stated that Woods, of Greenock, Inverclyde, committed a breach of the peace.

He pleaded guilty today at Glasgow Sheriff Court to the single charge.

A schedule of previous convictions was passed to the sheriff by prosecutor Iain Mathieson.

Patrick Brechany, defending, told the court: "His circumstances are highly unusual.

"I wonder if the court would benefit from a criminal justice social work report for this matter."

Sheriff David Taylor agreed and deferred sentence until the end of February when more information surrounding the circumstances will be heard.

Woods had his bail continued meantime.
