An alleged victim of Max Clifford told an ex-colleague the PR guru was "a bloody pervert", a court has heard today.
Southwark Crown Court has today heard the testimony of the ex-colleague of a woman who claims Mr Clifford "lunged" at her in a car in the 1960s.
The former workmate described how the victim told her that the alleged assault took place when she was a teenager of around 14 years of age.
"She used to hang around with friends at the Wimpy bar in Morden and Max Clifford used to go there," she said.
Another ex-colleague of the complainant then told the court: "I was told she went to a wooded area, not home and the car stopped... he pushed the car seat down and proceeded to jump on her,climb on top of her and pull at her clothes."
Clifford, 70, from Hersham in Surrey, is accused of a total of 11 counts of indecent assault against seven women and girls. He denies all charges.

The first alleged victim in the Nigel Evans sexual assault trial says he was "not abused".
He told Preston Crown Court: "Abused is too strong a word. It was a liberty."
Jurors heard police approached the man for a statement. He had not contacted officers with any complaint about the MP.
Nigel Evans' defence barrister asked the alleged victim if it was simply "drunken over-familiarity?"
The witness then likened the MP to "a drunken 14-year-old at the school disco".

The jury in the sexual assault trial of Nigel Evans MP has been hearing from the first alleged victim. The man alleges the politician assaulted him in 2003, while the two were at a bar in London.
Both he and Evans were drinking and, during the course of the night, he said the MP inappropriately touched him. Jurors heard the man walked away rather than make "a scene". He told the court: "I never encouraged it."
Afterwards, he said he "forgave" Evans: "He was drunk. I never thought I was the victim of a crime".
