A world-renowned heart surgeon has been found guilty of molesting women after groping and assaulting them at London hospitals.
The consultant, of Harrow, west London, denied all the claims against him.
A jury deliberated for 20 hours to find him guilty of twice indecently assaulting a woman by groping her breasts through her clothes between 2003 and 2004 and sexually assaulting another woman in 2014.
The court had heard how one victim had complained to the hospital about being indecently assaulted and was allegedly told “just ignore him, he does it to everyone”.
After deliberating for 23 hours, jurors were discharged, having failed to reach a verdict on a charge of rape.
Judge Anne Molyneux allowed the prosecution seven days to consider whether they would seek a retrial and adjourned the case until May 5.
