“If a fella is being brought to court for this then what is the world coming to?”

Quigley said he only engaged in banter with the teenagers and refuted suggestions that there was inappropriate contact. He insisted that inappropriate touching wasn’t his style.

He said the girls seemed pleased to chat.

“I could hear them talking in the back of the bus saying ‘Jesus he is a gas man’,” he said.

Quigley admitted telling the girls that he would take them to Disneyland if he won the lottery. However, he denied suggestions that he said they should share a room.

He also said in evidence that he suffered a brain injury thirteen years ago. The brain injury often gives people the impression that he is drunk, he claimed.
