Boss, 55, attacked Thai wife, 40, after finding her in a hotel

THE BOSS of a private ambulance firm went berserk after finding his Thai wife romping with a naked lover in a hotel room.

Raging Mike Morgan, 55, attacked his estranged missus, Rossalin, and her new fella after spotting her car parked outside the four-star retreat.

He managed to find their room and erupted after Rossalin, 40, answered the door in “a state of undress”, a court was told.

Dad-of-two Morgan slapped his wife who fell to the floor and then dragged her starkers lover, Neil Bannister, from the shower.

The two men then wrestled on the bed.

Prosecutor Nadine Clough said Bannister managed to overpower Morgan and held him face down on the bed in a bid to calm the situation.

‘HORRIBLE WOMAN’

Morgan continued to be abusive, branding his wife a “horrible woman”, before finally leaving.

Mr Bannister suffered scratches and bruises during October’s attack at the £200-a-night Coniston Hotel in Skipton, North Yorks., where Rossalin worked as a cleaner.

Morgan, whose private ambulance fleet provided cover at the 2012 London Olympics, admitted assault by beating of both his wife and Mr Bannister.

He also pleaded guilty to harassment without violence of Rossalin between October 4 and October 10 after threatening to post naked pictures of her on Facebook.

John Mewies, mitigating, said his furious client had “come across a scene that he could barely believe”.

He had entered the hotel lobby and thought something strange was going on because staff appeared to be “sniggering slightly”.

Mr Mewies said: “He knocked on the door, his wife answered.

‘LOST HIS TEMPER’

“She was in a state of undress and he saw a naked man in the shower. He lost his temper and there was a bit of a fracas in the hotel room.

“He is deeply affected by this, but it is a situation not of his making. He came across a scene that he could barely believe.”

Skipton Magistrates Court was told Morgan founded Events Medical Services in 2002 and saw it grow into one of the UK’s leading independent ambulance companies.

His fleet of emergency response vehicles and staff of first aiders, medics, nurses, paramedics, doctors and fire marshalls, also provided cover on the sets of Coronation Street, Heartbeat, Shameless and Emmerdale.

Morgan will return to the court on January 15 to be sentenced and was warned he faces a possible jail term.

Last night, speaking at the former family home in the town, Rossalin told The Sun: “We were not together when this happened, we have split up.”
