A former GP will appear in court today on suspicion of carrying out a series of indecent assaults on young girls over an eight-year period.
Dr Antony Collis, 58, from Wadhurst, East Sussex, is also charged with nine counts of making indecent images of children between April 2004 and October last year.
He is alleged to have indecently assaulted seven girls between the ages of 10 and 14 between June 1995 and April 2003.
He is charged with 22 offences in all, many of which are alleged to have been carried out when he was practising at the Belmont Surgery in Wadhurst.
Collis is on bail and will appear at Lewes Crown Court from 2pm.
