We aren't surprised he has been struck off. It is more of a surprise that he was able to work as a pathologist for so long and that he was selected to do the post-mortem on Ian.
We are pleased that he will not be able to put any more families through the ordeal he caused us, but the damage he has done can't now be undone.
