A Cambridge doctor who admitted to serial sexual abuse of dozens of young cancer patients has been sentenced to 22 years in prison.
Myles Bradbury, who worked at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge, admitted to 25 offences including sexual assault, voyeurism and possession of over 16,000 images of children.
The 41-year-old blood cancer specialist further admitted to the abuse of 18 young patients in his care between 2009 and 2013.
Bradbury was arrested in 2013 after Canadian Authorities informed the UK’s Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) that Bradbury had bought a DVD containing indecent images of children.
The judge told Bradbury that his behaviour was a “gross and grotesque breach of trust,” saying he had never before seen such a flagrant abuse of the trust placed in a medical figure.
