Inquests will be opened into the deaths of nine more patients of jailed breast surgeon Ian Paterson, a hearing heard.

Judge Richard Foster said teams had reviewed 417 cases of former patients, where breast cancer had been listed as a cause of death in part one of the death certificate.

Of those, 36 deaths in total are the subject of an inquest with a further 21 cases also likely to be reviewed.

Paterson is currently serving a 20-year jail sentence for wounding with intent.

He had been found guilty of carrying out unnecessary or unapproved procedures on more than 1,000 breast cancer patients over a period of 14 years.

A report by the Heart of England Trust in 2017, when Paterson was jailed, found that 675 of his 1,206 mastectomy patients had died.
