Breast surgeon Ian Paterson is a criminal who committed grotesque, violent acts, one of his victims said.

John Ingram was speaking at the sentencing of Paterson, found guilty of 17 counts of wounding with intent relating to ten victims.

The surgeon exaggerated or invented cancer risks and claimed payments for more expensive procedures in some cases, the earlier trial was told.

Mr Ingram underwent an unnecessary double mastectomy.
