A doctor sexually abused children with cancer, a court has been told.

Myles Bradbury, a paediatric haematologist at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge, is accused of sexual offences against boys aged 11 to 15.

The 41-year-old from Herringswell, Suffolk, is alleged to have carried out the offences between 2011 and 2013.

Cambridge Magistrates' Court heard he was facing a total of 11 charges including four counts of sexual assault.

He also faces four counts of engaging in, or inciting a boy to engage in, sexual activity, two charges of making indecent images of a child and one count of voyeurism.

Mr Bradbury was not asked to enter a plea and was bailed to appear at Cambridge Crown Court on 11 July.

A spokesman for Addenbrooke's Hospital said Dr Bradbury no longer worked for Cambridgeshire University Hospitals Trust.
