A married bank worker who stole more than £2m ($3.3m) from Barclays and squandered it on lady friends has been jailed for seven years.
He spent almost all the cash on call girls, lavishing £1m ($1.6m) on one escort alone. The computer geek spent months wining and dining the Thai woman, known as Kookai, travelling to London from his Cheshire home and taking her to expensive hotels and restaurants.
All the while Skermer's wife of ten years, Tracy, 33, with whom he has two young sons, was in the dark about his infidelity.
He explained nights away from the family in Widnes by saying he was 'working with the police' investigating fraud.
Skermer's position as head of an IT security team allowed him to steal more than £2.1m ($3.49m) from the bank undetected over five years.
