HAZLE: TEACHER'S EXPLANATION FOR BEING IN THE WOMEN'S TOILETS

DAGENHAM/HARLOW A dyslexic geography teacher accused of trying to photograph a colleague on the toilet told a court he was in the women's lavatory because he was having a panic attack. Stephen Hazle, 43, claimed his anxiety was triggered by his dyslexia and he was on strong anti-depressants to try and keep it under control. He said the drugs had serious side effects and he would often have to rush to the toilet to avoid soiling himself. On 18 June last year, he said he was gripped by anxiety while preparing for a lesson, and used the ladies’ staff toilets because the men’s and the disabled toilet were in use. He said: ‘I had my phone in my hand because I was trying to call [my wife], and I put it on the floor while I was leaning over the bowl.’ Hazle added that when he went into the ladies’, he didn’t even know there was anyone in there. ‘There was no way in my mind I was attempting to take any pictures,’ he insisted.
