Woman was ‘groped by GP’

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

A TRUSTED GP sex­u­ally abused the same fe­male pa­tient dur­ing reg­u­lar con­sul­ta­tions at his surgery – for 13 YEARS, a court heard.

Dr Ter­ence Bur­ley, 63, de­nies hav­ing an in­ap­pro­pri­ate re­la­tion­ship with the pa­tient, who is now in her 60s, and who can­not be named.

But Cam­bridge Crown Court heard the vic­tim was sub­jected to a string of abuse when she went to him for treat­ment, start­ing in the mid-1990s.

The jury heard how Dr Bur­ley told her had an erotic dream about her, made her strip to her un­der­wear and groped her dur­ing an in­ti­mate exam.

The court was told he also fon­dled her breasts, call­ing them “beau­ti­ful”.

The Peter­bor­ough GP is ac­cused of in­de­cent as­sault.

He de­nies the charges and the trial con­tin­ues.
