Pathologist Freddy Patel struck off

Pathologist Freddy Patel, who carried out the first post-mortem on Ian Tominson has today been struck off for a catalogue of errors after a tribunal earlier this week found him to have been dishonest as well as incompetent.

For the latest news developments see the article in the Guardian today.

Julia Tomlinson said today "We aren't surprised he has been struck off. It is more of a surprise that he was able to work as a pathologist for so long and that he was selected to do the post mortem on Ian. We are pleased that he will not be able to put any more families through the ordeal he caused us, but the damage he has done can't now be undone."
