Three further victims of a paedophile doctor from Suffolk have received compensation, it has been reported.

Myles Bradbury, of Herringswell, a village near Bury St Edmunds, was imprisoned for 22 years in 2014 after he admitting abusing 18 children under his care at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge.

The trust had paid out more than £600,000 by the start of October 2017.

Today, the BBC reported the hospital had since settled three additional claims totalling £56,000 from two girls and a boy aged 12 to 13.

The BBC said it obtained the details through a Freedom of Information request to Addenbrooke’s Hospital.

Bradbury, a paediatric consultant haematologist, filmed some of his victims, who ranged in age from 10 to 16, using a spy pen and abused others behind a curtain while their parents were in the room.

He pleaded guilty to 25 offences, including sexual assault, voyeurism and possessing more than 16,000 indecent images.
