Terry Skitmore holds a graduation photo of his recently deceased boyfriend Amin Abdullah outside his home in Notting Hill, West London, today. Amin committed suicide by setting himself on fire outside Kensington Palace. See National story NNPALACE; An award winning nurse killed himself outside the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s London home after being sacked from his hospital job, it was revealed today. Amin Abdullah, 41, of Notting Hill, west London, was fired from the job that he “lived for” at Charing Cross Hospital for signing a petition in support of an embattled colleague. He doused himself in petrol and set himself alight outside Kensington Palace in west London last Tuesday. Amin, who went into a spiral of depression after losing his dream job, was allowed to leave his mental health hospital alone just hours earlier – despite suffering suicidal thoughts. His partner of 12 years, Terry Skitmore, 62, blasted the NHS trust for sacking him for what it admitted was a “foolish mistake” days before Christmas. He said: “The way they treated him was disgraceful.”
