A jury has been sent out to consider verdicts in the trial of a breast surgeon accused of wounding 10 patients after allegedly carrying out a series of "completely unnecessary" operations.
Ian Paterson lied to his alleged victims, "exaggerating or quite simply inventing the risk of cancer" and claimed payments for more expensive procedures, Nottingham Crown Court has heard.
The seven-week trial heard the 59-year-old's alleged motives were "obscure", but may have included a desire to "earn extra money".
