Sean Frayne

The jury in the trial of Derbyshire's Chief Fire Officer Sean Frayne has heard he admitted having sex with the alleged victim under police questioning, but claimed it was consensual.

Transcripts were presented of an interview carried out by police with Frayne in February 2014.

He is accused of raping a woman at a pub in December 2006.

The court heard today that the 48-year-old admitted to police that he and the woman did have sex, but he said on tape that "she didn't stop me. I didn't stop her."

Frayne was also heard to say "It was as much me as her. It was one if those incidents in life when you look back and think why did I do that?"

He denies the charge of rape. The trial at Derby Crown court continues.

Sean Frayne has been suspended from his position at the Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service for the duration of proceedings.
