A Covid test worker has been sacked after filming himself urinating in a soap dispenser at a primary school used as a test centre before posting the video on Snapchat.
Disgusting footage shows the agency staffer urinating into the nearly empty soap bottle in a sink at John Paul II Primary School on Whiterock Road in Belfast.
A still photo then shows the bottle after being filled with urine and left for the next bathroom user to deal with.
The site – which is run by outsourcing firm Serco on behalf on Northern Ireland‘s Health and Social Care authority – was shut after the incident was uncovered on Sunday afternoon and bosses even informed the police.

The worker’s behaviour was branded ‘completely unacceptable’ and he was sacked, while the dispenser has now been removed and thrown away.
John Paul II Primary School is operating a temporary testing site for pre-booked appointments only.
A source told MailOnline the worker was being paid £10 an hour and could have handed out hundreds of Covid tests during his employment.
He was allegedly employed by the agency ALS People, which has not responded to requests for comment.

Northern Ireland’s Public Health Agency has also been contacted for comment.
George McFarlane Serco Head of Operations, Testing Services, said: ‘This behaviour by an agency employee working at a test site that we run is disgusting and completely unacceptable and we are very sorry that it happened.
‘As soon as the school reopened this morning after the weekend, we informed them and notified the police. We have asked the agency to remove the individual and he will not be working on the test programme again.’

A source told MailOnline they were ‘disgusted’ by the incident. They said: ‘The soap dispenser was left in the bathroom for the next rotation of staff to find the next day. I think it’s disgusting.
‘My main issue is it was the school’s soap dispenser not ours, so it would have been left in the school where classes are starting in the next week or so and potentially used by the children there. It’s horrific.’
