A Brazilian hospital doctor used 'fake fingers' made of silicon to record the attendance of fellow medics when they were not at work.

Officers seized six 'fingers' from doctor Thauane Nunes Ferreira, 29, when they arrested her on Sunday following a tip-off.

The ensuing scandal has led to investigations in Ferraz de Vasconcelos, near Sao Paulo, into the number of 'ghost workers' in the town.

The mayor Acir Fillo said as many as 300 civil servants claimed their salary without going to work, according to Brazilian website G1.
