RJ Ellory, the bestselling British crime writer exposed for writing fake online reviews, has been banned from editing on Wikipedia after he was found to be deleting stories from his biography.

The Daily Telegraph can disclose that the 47 year-old was "permanently blocked" after attempting on more than a dozen occasions to remove negative stories on his posting on the internet using pseudonyms.

Volunteers from the online encyclopedia, which has more than 450 million users worldwide, became suspicious about his activity amid accusations it compromised the integrity of the profile.
