working in the factory at Segar textiles for the last three years. To boost her Income, 6 months ago, she also took on casual work as a "Singing telegram" lady who does an exotic dance and sings a greeting at birthday parties and other celebrations.

At one point during the evening, Gillian was walking down the dark corridor towards the toilets, when she heard a voice behind her say "Hi there, busty", and two hands grabbed her bottom and squeezed hard. This turned out to be Terry Tudor, a not very handsome technician, whose advances Gillian had rejected a few days before
Although this incident was not seen or heard by anyone else, Gillian now says that she found the experience deeply upsetting. She decided to go and see the Company personnel manager the next day to complain. However, he simply told Gillian not to be a silly girl and to just accept that under party conditions .people will get a bit frisky and over-familiar.
