A woman claimed she was in Max Clifford's office for one or two hours while he was allegedly persuading her to take her top off, a court.
But in cross-examination, Richard Horwell QC, defending, put it to her: "If you went to that office you would have seen him for no more than 15 minutes, 30 minutes at the most." She replied: "It took him longer than that to persuade me to take my top off."
Mr Horwell went on: "I suggest that, if you went to his office, that would have been the first and the last time that you ever saw him." She replied: "Not true. I wish it had been the truth."
The defence asked the alleged victim whether she had seen singer Tom Waits - who was represented by Clifford - in Spain, rather than the defendant.
He said: "Mr Clifford was in England, I suggest, in August 1977 and, as you know, I have just suggested to you that the only connection to Mr Clifford in Torremolinos, as far as he is aware, is the presence of that singer Tom Waits who was staying at the Continental Hotel."
The witness insisted: "He (Clifford) was there." The case was adjourned until tomorrow.

Mayor of New York Bill De Blasio has confirmed that a "gas leak was reported 15 minutes before the incident" which caused the explosion. He also said that 250 firefighters are on scene in Harlem.
Mayor de Blasio continued by saying: "This is a tragedy of the worst kind" with near 20 injured and reports that two are dead.
Con Edison, the energy company which services most of New York, confirmed a resident called to "report a gas odour" before the blast:
Report of a gas odor at 1652 Park came at 9:13 from a resident. 2 #ConEdison crews were dispatched at 9:15 and arrived just after explosion.
NBC New York Correspondent Jonathan Vigilotti said the smoke is "making things difficult" for firefighters searching the area for survivors:

The buildings that exploded were both five stories tall and they both had collapsed down to the first floor, according to a senior FDNY official who spoke to NBC News reporter Tom Winter.
