THAT'S A BIT K16 NKY; Prison warden dumps wife and children to move in with lesbian .. in the same street.
A PRISON warden has dumped his wife and kids and moved into a house along the street with a lesbian colleague.
George Abbott is now living in his parents' home with lover Debbie Mclean, who drives a car with the registration plate KI6 NKY.
Mclean, 31, openly brags at Edinburgh's Saughton jail of her lesbian past.
She was living with a female lover who is now undergoing a sex change in Penicuik, Midlothian, when she met father-of-two Abbott.
They are both operational staff at the jail, escorting inmates to hospital, court or family visits.
Abbott, 32, walked out on his wife Caroline, 18-year-old son and 14-year-old daughter after admitting he was having an affair.
He moved into his parents' home on the same street in Fauldhouse, West Lothian, and Mclean joined him there last month.
A jail source said yesterday: 'Their relationship was a shock because Debbie was very open about being a lesbian and had a live-in lover.
'Debbie at first seemed very quiet and reserved, but her registration plate 'KINKY' gave a clue to her true self.
'Within a few weeks, she was telling everyone she was a lesbian. She said she had a serious relationship with a female lover called Gill and they lived together.
'Debbie brags that she is into the S&M club scene and even models fetish and bondage gear on the internet. All the guys were very excited and she loved it.
'Everyone was surprised when she and George got together.
'They were all over each other at a work do just before Christmas. Now they always wangle the same shifts.'
Mclean, originally from Cumbernauld, Lanarkshire, went to school in Hawick, Roxburghshire.
She moved in with former girlfriend Gillian Williamson, 31, who is now having a sex change to become a man, three years ago.
Gillian, 31, yesterday confirmed she had lived with Debbie but denied they had been lovers.
She said: 'I am not a lesbian. I am going through a sex change, so things are complicated. Debbie lived here with me, but that is all.'
Abbott's wife of seven years Caroline, 36, yesterday said she had filed for divorce but refused to comment further on her husband's affair.
But a close pal said: 'The whole street was shocked when he moved across the road.
'Her 'KINKY' number plate is just rubbing it in.'
Yesterday, Abbot refused to discuss the relationship, but told the Record: 'This is just my wife trying to stir up a lot of trouble that's all this is about.'
Abbott's parents Peter, 65, and Isabella, 64, said Mclean had been living at their home since May 10.
Isabella said: 'She's a nice quiet lassie. She is always wanting to help around the house whenever she can.'
Peter, a retired factory worker, said: 'We much prefer Deborah and we are very happy for her to live here.'
