A paedophile who moaned online about having to tell employers about his crimes has been sacked from his new job after lying about his past.

Ex-Scottish Government civil servant Christopher Black was jailed for 20 months in 2011 after a police probe found he had more than 2000 horrific images and videos of child abuse on various devices.

Black, 35, was also placed on the sex offenders’ register.

He then landed a management job with Macdonald Hotels at their head office in Bathgate, West Lothian.

But he failed to tell bosses about his criminal past when he was appointed in November 2014 and the hotel chain were tipped off about it by a sickened colleague.

Blog posts by Black where he complains about having to disclose his past

Black, who lives in a swanky flat in Livingston, was sacked last week.

The convict had previously whinged on his blog, Rants Of A Hopeless Idealist, about criminals having to disclose convictions to employers.
