** Court proceedings against a Scottish Ambulance Service paramedic continued this week, with the latest testimony hearing David Lee, 31, placed his female partner’s hand on his crotch while the duo were transporting a pregnant patient to hospital. The BBC (October 3) said Lee is currently on trial facing 15 charges involving a multiple number of women. According to the news site, he has claimed any sexual contact as consensual. However, the same woman denied this, saying he also exposed himself to her while in the ambulance’s rear cab. The allegations relate to Lee’s time in Aberdeen between 2013-15 when he was training to upgrade from an ambulance technician to a paramedic.
