An Aberdeenshire paramedic accused of indecent behaviour towards colleagues has claimed the women were colluding against him.

David Lee, 31, of Westhill, is on trial for alleged offences against fellow Scottish Ambulance Service staff.

He faces a total of 15 charges said to have taken place between 2013 to 2015 involving five people.

Mr Lee told Aberdeen Sheriff Court: "There has been very obvious collusion outside this court."

The court has heard claims that Mr Lee took one of his colleague's hands and put it on his groin area while she was driving a pregnant patient.

'Calculated lies'

The married father-of-one said that the women were ganging up against him after their sexually "liberal" attitudes at work were exposed.

He said: "They have stood here and told very significant and calculated lies.

"They've shown complete disregard for my life and the effects of what they are saying is having on it."

Mr Lee is alleged to have acted in a culpable and reckless manner towards women when they were behind the wheel of an ambulance.

The trial, before Sheriff Graeme Napier, continues.
