Mr Worboys is accused of attacking 14 women



A black cab driver accused of drugging and sexually assaulting female passengers has admitted in court giving women champagne and lying to them.

John Worboys, 51, of Rotherhithe, south-east London, also admitted sexual activity with some customers but denied spiking their drinks.

He told Croydon Crown Court he made up stories about winning money at casinos as "banter" to engage their interest.

Mr Worboys denies 23 charges, including rape and sexual assault, on 14 women.

He told the court he was a retired stripper who craved the attention of women after the death of his mother from cancer when he was a teenager.

Speaking in his defence, Mr Worboys admitted he gave a false name - often his stripping stage name Terry - and invented details about his background, such as attending university, where he lived, and winning money at casinos, to aid conversation.

He told the court: "I used to wait until I had a good two or three thousand pounds with me and I used to sort of make up a story that I won money in the casino or lottery.

"I used to show it to them and ask if they would celebrate with me and have a drink, either champagne or wine, just to celebrate my winnings."

'Attention and cuddles'

He said he would make the offer of a drink on his last job of the night so as to stay under the drink drive limit and "99%" of women accepted.

Asked if he had engaged in sexual activity with passengers in his cab he said yes, but told the court: "To my knowledge they have never been drugged.

"I just would not do that."

Speaking about his his "odd" behaviour, he told the jury: "I think it is due to my mum dying when I was young.

"I lost her when I was 13 and all my friends were getting attention and cuddles and stuff like that."

The prosecution claim Mr Worboys spent 18-months preying on young women he picked up outside nightspots across central London in his black cab.

The case continues.

Witness appeal after sex attack
12:41pm Friday 7th November 2008

wallasey News

By Justin Dunn »

A WOMAN was raped by a hackney cab driver on her way home from a night out in Birkenhead.

The attack happened at 1am on September 29 when the 22-year-old was picked up along with two friends in Bridge Street, near to Hamilton Square.

The victim's friends had already been dropped off at home when the hackney driver drove past her address to the Durley Industrial Estate in Prenton, where he raped her.

The man is described as white, aged 35-40, around 6ft tall, with a fat build, stubble and a local accent.

Police investigating the incident confirmed they were also probing a similar attack reported in Widnes on September 20, when a 32-year-old woman who'd hailed a black cab in Wood Street, Liverpool, was raped.

Polcie say that, despite the similarities in the two cases, they are not hunting a serial rapist.

If anyone has information, they are asked to call the Rape Support Unit on 0151 777 1382 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
