6 GPs 'at fault over Shipman'.

SIX doctors failed to perform checks that could have stopped Harold Shipman's murder spree, the General Medical Council heard yesterday.

They countersigned his forms to let 214 patients be cremated over 18 years.

But GMC lawyer Nigel Grundy said: "Alarm bells should have been ringing.

"They ought to have done something about it - either report it to the coroner, police or GMC."

Some 124 were later deemed unlawfully killed in Hyde, Gtr Manchester.

Peter Bennett, Jeremy Dirckze, Stephen Farrar, Alastair MacGillivray and Rajesh Patel deny serious professional misconduct.

A sixth, retired Susan Booth, did not attend.

The Manchester disciplinary case goes on.
