AHMED: SECRET PICS DOCTOR HARMED PATIENTS

TORBAY A doctor who secretly photographed women while conducting intimate examinations was branded a 'risk to patients' by health watchdogs today. Dr Suheil Ahmed, 28, turned part of a ward at Torbay Hospital, Devon, into his own pornography studio when he took more than 100 covert snaps of unsuspecting women. The trainee surgeon caused 'harm and distress' to vulnerable women who were unwell when he sectioned off their beds from the rest of the ward so he could be alone with them. He then touched his victims as he removed their clothing to get a better view of their bodies for his camera.

COULSON ACCUSED OF HYPOCRISY FOR EXPOSING BLUNKETT'S AFFAIR

CHARING, KENT; CHIPPING NORTON, OXFORDSHIRE Former News of the World editor Andy Coulson was accused of 'pure hypocrisy' for exposing Home Secretary David Blunkett's affair with a married woman while cheating on his own wife.

He and Brooks had been involved in an on-off illicit relationship behind the backs of Coulson's wife Eloise and Brooks' then-husband, Eastenders actor Ross Kemp. Coulson has admitted running a News of the World expose of Mr Blunkett's affair with Kimberly Fortier after being played hacked voicemails left by the senior Labour politician for his lover, the publisher of the Spectator magazine.
