Paedophile doctor Myles Bradbury has been urged to admit how many young cancer patients he abused.

Bradbury, 41, is starting a 22-year jail sentence for abusing 18 young boys over a four-and-a-half year period while working as a haematologist at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, in Cambridge.

Since his arrest in July, at least 54 parents and worried callers have contacted a helpline set up by the NSPCC.

Twelve of those were referred to police but Bradbury has refused to admit the true number of children he abused at the hospital.

Detective Constable Claire Edwards questioned him during the investigation into his crimes. She said: “It would have been good for the families if he had spoken about who he had abused, but I interviewed him on three separate occasions and all he would say was his name and date of birth and answered all questions with ‘no comment’.”

Det Con Edwards added this has had a “massive impact” on families as police might never know how many children he abused.

During the 1990s, Bradbury worked with young children at playschemes in Bedford, and previously attended Bedford Modern School.

Now, married with a young daughter, he could face a fresh trial as police investigate further possible victims. Anyone with information should call police on 101.
