A GASMAN appearing at court tried to evade the waiting Press photographers by dressing as a woman, complete with high heels.

But the snappers saw through Martyn Crute's surprising disguise.

And as they give chase, he flicked his hair across his face in a vain attempt to hide his stubble.

Crute, a director of UK Oil and Gas Ltd, had appeared at Lincoln Crown Court charged with trading for 15 months without being registered to director former gas safety body Corgi. His business was said to have put lives at risk due to the poor standard of work they carried out.

The firm have since been wound up, with debts of more than pounds 100,000.

Crute, from Retford, Nottinghamshire, admitted a charge of breaching the Health and Safety at Work Act.

He was fined pounds 2000 and ordered to pay pounds 41,000 prosecution costs. He was also banned from being a company director for seven years.
