A pathologist was today found guilty of serious misconduct over his post mortem examination reports into the death of a victim of so-called "Camden Ripper" Anthony Hardy.

A General Medical Council panel ruled Dr Freddy Patel's fitness to practise was impaired by his lack of "insight" and decision to leave autopsy findings that he considered not "relevant" to the cause of death out of his report.

The panel also found him guilty of dishonesty regarding his CV and invited lawyers from both sides to suggest suitable sanctions.
