The celebrity eye surgeon who ‘saved’ EastEnders actress June Brown from blindness is being investigated by the General Medical Council amid growing concerns about his practices, exposed by this newspaper in April, according to a report in the UK Daily Mail.

The Mail on Sunday has learned that he is being investigated by doctors’ governing body the GMC after scores of furious patients, most in their 70s and 80s who paid up to £25,000 for the heavily promoted procedure at the London Eye Hospital, alleged they were left with little or no improvement to their vision following the surgery.
