Four members of staff at Lynn’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital have gone on trial accused of harassing a colleague.

The case against William Clunan, 58, of Reffley Lane, Gaywood; Wayne Gibbs, 38, of Queen Mary Road, Gaywood; Richard Lovell, 46, of Garwood Close, Gaywood and Allyn Witham, 61, of Langridge Circle, Watlington, is currently being heard at Norwich Crown Court.

All four men have pleaded not guilty to a single charge of harassment, which is said include the use of racist language, jokes and intimidating behaviour.

The alleged offence is said to cover a period of several months between February 1 and November 7 last year.

Officials from the hospital have previously confirmed that the men are employed there, but said no further statement would be issued until the legal process is completed.

The trial, which is being heard by the Recorder of Norwich, Judge Stephen Holt, continues.
