London, Sep 29 (ANI): Former British Prime Minister Tony Blairs female police bodyguard, who left a gun in a Starbucks toilet, has done it before.

Vicky McPherson was axed last month after removing a belt holding the Glock 17 to relieve herself.

Now, it has emerged that she did the same on a trip to the US with the ex-PM in May. A toilet attendant found her gun in a hotel loo in Orlando, Florida, The Sun reported.

It was passed to a UK official who chased after Vicky, 35, to return it. Officers investigating the Starbucks incident have only just been told about the earlier gaffe which was kept secret.

A source said there is a clamour for Vicky, dubbed Calamity Jane by colleagues, to be axed.

The insider said: Its bad enough it happened once. Twice is a serious failure of duty. Calamity Jane wont survive this.

Vicky, on restricted duties, is being probed over both matters.

She left her semi-automatic pistol on the loo floor at the Starbucks in Londons Edgware Road for 20 minutes.

An employee called 999 and armed cops rushed to the cafe to retrieve it.

Vicky, attached to the Yards crack SO1 protection unit, searched for an hour for the gun before it was linked back to her.

The officer, one of the top in her class during training, is fighting to keep her job, say pals. (ANI)
