A prison officer has been sacked after an inquiry revealed his Facebook friends included 13 convicted criminals.

Nathan Singh, 27, was fired for gross misconduct after a probe showed he was friends on the site with a drug dealer, a fraudster and a murderer, The Sun has reported. 

His friendships with the convicts were revealed after an investigation into claims he was supplying mobile phones and other banned items to inmates at Leicester jail where he worked.

No evidence was found to back up the accusations but the Operation Earlgrey investigators did discover his social network links to known criminals. 

The newspaper published a photograph of Singh taken from Facebook showing him with a convicted fraudster at Cheltenham races. He was pictured with Tyrone Leadeatt, 28, who is serving two-and-a-half years in prison.

He was also friends with Mark Simmonds, 37, who served 10 years for a fatal stabbing outside a nightclub in Leicester in 1995. 

Other friends included Daimi O'Brien, 26, who was jailed for two years for affray, and Myron Wallace, 26, who was convicted of drugs offences and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice. 

A Prison Service spokesman said: "Following an investigation, a prison officer from HMP Leicester was dismissed in January for gross misconduct.
