A children's doctor from Bury St Edmunds is due in court tomorrow, after being been charged with sexual offences against boy aged as young as 11

Dr Myles Bradbury is accused of four counts of sexual assault and four counts of engaging in, or inciting a boy to engage in, sexual activity.

The 41 year old, a paediatric haematologist at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge, is alleged to have carried out the offences between December 2011 and December 2013. They relate to boys aged between 11 and 15.

He also faces two charges of making indecent images of a child and one count of voyeurism.

It's not known if the offences happened at the hospital but Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Trust, which runs Addenbrooke's Hospital, has set up a helpline to be used. They say it's "if parents, patients or former patients have any concerns".

The statement also said: ``We cannot comment on the allegations until the court hearing.''

The trust added it was working closely with the NSPCC.

The helpline, on 0800 389 8625, can be reached between 8am and 9pm on weekdays and 9am to 5pm at weekends.

Bradbury will appear at Cambridge Magistrates' Court.
