Pathologist's reports flawed

A pathologist's post-mortem reports on the first victim of the "Camden Ripper" Anthony Hardy were partially flawed, a disciplinary panel has found.

Dr Freddy Patel, who has been criticised over his investigation into the death of Ian Tomlinson in the G20 protests, was subject to a General Medical Council hearing over his examinations of Sally White.

He found she had died of natural causes in spite of blood stains on her clothing, bedding and a nearby wall.

Dr Patel was suspended from the medical register in September for three months after being found guilty of misconduct in two earlier post-mortems, and showing deficient professional performance in a third.
