A Hatfield doctor found guilty of fondling the breasts of a teenage girl and three female patients during unnecessary clinical examinations has been sentenced.

Doctor Mohammed Haq, 74, of Hornchurch was found guilty in March of the offences that occurred over 35 years ago while working at Burvill House Surgery and Hilltop Surgery. He was then bailed to allow time for medical reports to be prepared.

On Friday at St Albans Crown Court, he was given 18 months in prison, charged £7,500 in costs to pay within six months, and put on the sex offenders list for 10 years.
