Abuse case woman tells of her hurt

By Staff Reporter

A 20-year old woman who claims she was sexually abused by traditional Irish musician Francis McPeake said that the pensioner "lost his temper" when she told him she thought she might be pregnant.

The Belfast woman – who was 15 when she said she embarked on a sexual relationship with the then 67-year-old – spent her third day in the witness box Belfast Crown Court.

Her version of events has been completely rejected by McPeake.

Breaking down in tears, the woman said she was "angry and hurt" about what McPeake had done. The trial is due to resume on Monday.
