Detective 'refused sex session on cost'.

AN escort girl told a juror in the trial of a North East detective accused of being on the payroll of a gangster how she was turned down for a three-in-a-bed sex session because of the cost.

John Jones is alleged to have been paid pounds 2,000 a week by drug baron Allan Foster in exchange for confidential information from the police computer.

Prosecutors at Newcastle Crown Court say Jones, 48, had was treated by Foster to a pounds 10,000 limousine-chauffered spending spree in London's West End in April 2006.

There the pair are said to have visited clubs and bars, snorted cocaine and visited a house which 32-year-old Foster was renting in Stanhope Mews, Kensington, where call girls were ordered through an escort agency.

One sex worker giving evidence yesterday under the pseudonym Danielle Lewis recalled how she went to the house with another escort girl - arriving at the same time as a third.

She said there were two men at the house when they got there, one younger and one older, and both smartly dressed.

Ms Lewis said there had been some conversation between her and the two men: "I think someone was buying a house or something to do with property," she told the jury.

She said initially all of them had been in the living room, but then the two men went upstairs with the two other women while she stayed downstairs.

She said the older man said yes when asked if he wanted her to join him and one of the other women but turned down the offer when told it would cost more.

Jones, then a detective with the Northumbria Crime Operations Department, denies three charges of misconduct in public office.

A second defendant Bruce McCall, 42, of Cornelia Terrace, Seaham, County Durham, denies aiding and abetting Jones's alleged misconduct and Class C drug charges.

Foster is still wanted for allegedly killing his henchman David "Noddy" Rice in South Shields in May 2006. The trial continues today.
