Andrew Lansley: Breast implant advice is unchanged

A government review of data used to assess the risks posed by faulty breast implants is to be carried out, Health Secretary Andrew Lansley has said.

Mr Lansley said the review was due to conflicting data on implant ruptures.

He reiterated government advice that the implants, which 40,000 UK women have, do not require routine removal.
