48-year-old Frances Andrade, who was sexually assaulted as a child by the former director of music at Chetham's school of music, Michael Brewer, was visibly agitated as she gave evidence. She complained her molester was smiling at her in the dock.
I keep seeing Mike smiling and he is driving me mad. He is right there.
Judge Martin Rudland said Mrs Andrade had taken personal issue with some of Brewer's barrister's questions, Ms Kate Blackwell QC.
Ms Blackwell said she was "indulging in the realms of fantasy" and several times said her testimony was "simply not true". Mrs Andrade responded:
You are hugely insulting, even though it's your job. I just hope these things have never happened to you, I really do.
I am not in the realms of fantasy and I really understand why so many cases have not come to court.
The judge indicated that Miss Blackwell had acted perfectly properly and professionally in her line of questioning.
