Surgeon calls for removal of all faulty breast implants
A surgeon advising the government has called for the removal of all faulty breast implants, following a health scare in France.
Tim Goodacre, a member of a panel looking at products made by French firm PIP, said the reported risk of rupture was "quite out of the ordinary".
The government said the failure rate was 1%, but private clinic Transform believes it could be up to 7%.
