A pedophile British doctor has admitted to sexually abusing 18 of his young cancer patients between 2009 and 2013.

During a Cambridge Crown Court hearing on Friday, Myles Bradbury confessed to abusing 18 children in his care.

Bradbury admitted to 25 offenses, including sexual assault, voyeurism, and the possession of over 16,000 indecent images taken with a spy pen.

Bradbury, a 41-year-old father, was accused of isolating his victims — some of who had hemophilia, leukemia, or other serious afflictions — and physically examining them without medical requirement.

One of the victim’s parents told the court, “Since this has happened [my son] has changed a lot. He feels he has no purpose in life any more, he has panic attacks, he’s changed from a lively boy to a withdrawn boy.”

Following the hearing, Bradbury was remanded in custody and is to be sentenced on Monday.

The UK has witnessed a surge in child molestation and sexual abuse cases, some of which date back to the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s.
