A Stevenage paramedic has been banned from the profession for downloading, storing and viewing indecent images and movies of children.
Michael Ogilvie was struck off the Health Professions Council's register last Wednesday.
Mr Ogilvie had been suspended by the East of England Ambulance Service since his arrest following a police raid of his Stevenage home in 2009 and now works in the private sector.
He was 36 when he was arrested along with his partner, who was then aged 29, and is now his wife.
Herts police's paedophile investigations unit found 145 indecent images and six indecent movies on a computer at the address.
The committee found Mr Ogilvie's fitness to practise was impaired after concluding that he had downloaded, viewed and stored indecent images and movies of children on his home computer from around 2005 to 2010, which it said amounted to misconduct.
Panel chairman John Williams said: "The panel concluded that the various times and dates of the creation of the files were indicative of an ongoing pattern of behaviour, as opposed to an isolated incident."
The HPC regulator found: "The registrant [Mr Ogilvie] constantly denied any such involvement and therefore, in the view of the panel, had not displayed any insight. A clear message should be sent that any involvement in child pornography would not be tolerated. The panel found that the allegation is well-founded.
"The panel felt that a suspension order would be likely to undermine the public confidence in the profession and unlikely to have a suitable deterrent effect upon the registrant.
"The panel took into account that it had no evidence that there would not be a repetition of the conduct which formed the subject matter of the allegation."
Herts police arrested Mr Ogilvie on suspicion of possession of indecent images of children at the time, but no charges were brought against him or his wife.
Ambulance service spokesman Gary Sanderson said: "Following the arrest of this member of staff, he was immediately suspended and an internal investigation was launched.
"This resulted in him being dismissed from the trust on the grounds of gross misconduct."
