Myles Bradbury, 42, from Herringswell, Suffolk, who worked as a paediatric consultant haematologist at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, had his custodial term reduced by three judges at the Court of Appeal in London.

Lady Justice Hallett, Mr Justice Haddon-Cave and Mr Justice Goss announced that they were “restructuring” the original 22 years, replacing it with a custodial element of 16 years with an additional six years on licence.

Bradbury, who was described by the trial judge at Cambridge Crown Court as one of the worst paedophiles he had ever seen, watched proceedings today via video-link from prison on the Isle of Wight.

He was jailed in December after pleading guilty to more than 20 offences, including sexual assault, voyeurism and possessing more than 16,000 indecent images, involving boys aged between 10 and 16.

All of the victims suffered from leukaemia, haemophilia or other serious conditions. Some have since died.

Bradbury filmed some of them using a spy pen and abused others behind a curtain while their parents were in the room.
