Another month another sensationalist story. Every month we try and bring you the most absurd piece of news from that part of the Daily Mail next to the sidebar of shame (you know, the news bit), this month’s entrant is Eleonora Verbitskaya, a Russian bureaucrat who was sacked after racy pictures of her were found online.

Ms Verbitskaya was a junior bureaucrat for the government in St Petersburg, and had even been earmarked for a promotion until her bosses discovered her after hours DJ alter ego, DJ Ellis Sexton.

The content uncovered included a partially naked video of Ms Verbitskaya performing a set and also provocative shots which were used as promotional material.

Ms Verbitskaya believes she has been dismissed for being too sexy and that the DJ career was completely separate from her job but many would argue that her digital footprint, despite not being directly linked to the employer, could bring it into disrepute should the connection be made. Despite the absurd headline it serves a reminder to be careful about what you post online.
