He just looked shocked, he genuinely looked a bit confused as to why Kerry was in the room. I felt violated, angry and just not at all happy about the situation at all,” the alleged victim told the court.Describing Ms Brocklebank’s behaviour in the waiting room, Mr Godfree told the court: “It was quite provocative, quite flirtatious. She wasn’t dressed appropriately to be dealing with customers. She was wearing a bikini. She was very drunk.”Mr Godfree said he walked to the massage room after hearing the man raise his voice, saying ‘don’t touch me’ and ‘get off me’. The jury was told pair came “face to face” after the runner, who cannot be named due to legal reasons, booked a session with therapist Henry Godfree at Huntingdon Spa and UK Sports Massage in Cambridgeshire, on October 11 last year.When the man, who is in his early thirties, arrived at the health spa he was sat with Ms Brocklebank in a waiting room which had been decked out with Halloween decorations. He told the court: “She sat opposite me and just started chatting and playing with a witches’ hat bizarrely. She was repeatedly shouting Henry’s name and repeatedly calling him darling.”It is claimed that as the man lay face-down on a massage table in his underwear waiting for Mr Godfree to return Ms Brocklebank walked in.”Kerry came into the room and said I’m going to start your massage while Henry’s not in here to which I replied, ‘don’t touch me, I’m here to see Henry’.” said the runner.The jury heard she ignored his pleas up to three times, saying she was a “qualified” and proceeded to pour massage oils on his right calf.

She carried on doing what I described before then rubbing my lower back as well.”At this point I’m still lying face down but I’m kind of twisted a bit to the right because I’m looking back to make a point of saying stop,” he said, adding:“She eventually moved around so that she was sat in front of me on a stool. I asked her to leave and get out. I could smell drink, as far as I’m concerned she was clearly drinking.” “At first he sounded sort of calm and then he sounded particularly panicked, a sort of sense of fear,” Mr Godfree said. “She was leaned over so her breasts would have been inches from his head. She looked as if I was spoiling her fun.”When the man later told Ms Brocklebank he was reporting the matter to the police and an industry ombudsman, she emailed him saying “again apologies, friends’ birthday, I shouldn’t mix business with pleasure”, and offered a free massage.

Jurors heard Ms Brocklebank was also charged with perverting the course of justice by sending “offensive and threatening electronic messages” in which she allegedly said: “Sorry did I interrupt gay time?” and “Believe me if this goes to court I will ruin the pair of you”.Ms Brocklebank denies one count of sexual assault with an alternative of common assault and perverting the course of justice.The trial continues.
