DC Nick Taylor and paramedic Eleanor Turner advertised their services online

A detective who sold threesomes with his paramedic lover has been banned for life from the police force.

DC Nick Taylor, 40, and Eleanor Turner, 28, used their £450,000 Shropshire home as a brothel for clients aged between 21 and 70.

They had reportedly charged £150-an-hour for their services.

Taylor, who was based with CID at Bloxwich in Walsall, had advertised the threesomes on the internet.

An undercover reporter from the Sun previously exposed his behaviour in 2020.

Taylor told the journalist that business had boomed during lockdown and he had been ‘rammed’ with offers.

He added: ‘We get naked, we play and they join in.’

Taylor, who had spent 19 years in the force, had quit his job following the newspaper’s exposé.

And he has now been found guilty of gross misconduct by West Midlands Police and banned from the police for life.

The panel’s chairman, Harry Ireland, said Taylor’s actions were ‘likely to undermine public confidence in the police given that he’d committed a criminal act in acting as a prostitute.’

He added: ‘Had the officer still been a serving officer he would have been dismissed.’

Taylor will now be placed on the barred list, preventing him from working in policing.

A former detective would have been dismissed had he not resigned after it emerged he and his partner were offering sexual services from his home for money.

He was not present at this week’s hearing.

Det Ch Supt Sam Ridding, of West Midlands Police, said: ‘We expect the highest standards of behaviour from our officers, both on and off duty. 

‘Like all officers, DC Taylor should not have engaged in activity that was likely to bring discredit on the police service and any business interests should have been declared to be assessed for any potential conflicts of interest with his role within the police.

‘He failed to do that, and his off duty actions brought discredit upon West Midlands Police.’
