Roger Woodward, Senior Crown Prosecutor in CPS Yorkshire and Humberside's Complex Casework Unit, said: "Gousul Islam was a family doctor - and as such he was placed in a position of absolute trust.

"Eight women and girls had that trust shockingly abused when he subjected them to innuendo, inappropriate touching, and sexual assault.

"I would like to pay tribute to the eight complainants who have displayed tremendous courage in giving evidence. As a result of our successful prosecution, Islam is now facing 11 years in prison for these appalling offences, and I would like that to send out

"The CPS treats this type of offending extremely seriously, and I would encourage anyone who has been the victim of his kind of assault to come forward and report the matter to the police."
