A jury will continue its deliberations tomorrow in the trial of an ambulanceman who denies sexually touching a drunken girl while she was being taken to hospital in Huddersfield.

Dale Kirby, 34, an emergency medical technician denies two charges of assault on the 18-year-old on November 30, 2014.

She claims he twice put his hand up her dress while she was lying on a stretcher and intentionally touched her intimately with his fingers.

Kirby told the jury he accidentally touched her once when he tried to protect her modesty by pulling her knickers up after she had exposed her and was thrown off balance by the movement of the ambulance.

Judge Mushtaq Khokhar told them not to discuss the case further until they have been sent out again tomorrow to consider the evidence.
