Most of the 121 children diagnosed as abuse victims by Middlesbrough General Hospital doctors and taken into care were eventually allowed home, which organisers of the conference still regard as a mistake.
The diagnoses were by doctors Marietta Higgs and Geoffrey Wyatt, who, with Mrs Richardson, were criticised over their roles. Mrs Richardson said: "The figure of 121 was just the tip of the iceberg out of a population of 500,000. It is impossible to say how many more children there might have been."
