Davinder Jeet Bains used a secret camera hidden inside his watch to assault more than two dozen women at the surgery in Royal Wootton Bassett. The 46-year-old was jailed for 12 years in May.

Following a two-day hearing, the independent Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service panel said the only way to protect patients and maintain public confidence was to remove him from the General Medical Council's register.

Bains has 28 days to lodge an appeal against his removal from the register.
