Linda Millband said: “This is yet another twist in the terrible story of Ian Paterson. This has been a horrific tale from start to finish, and it seems as if, for the families, the nightmare is not over yet.

“It is absolutely essential that we get to the truth, so I welcome the coroner’s inquests into the deaths. My heart goes out to the families who are affected, and who now have to face yet more upheaval while they wait for answers.”
