For three years, Mrs Palmer kept a detailed diary on his activities – including sessions in his garden hot tub with women, and when he had sex in his bedroom. In one of her notes, she wrote: ‘I saw Mr Collins in his hot tub with two women. He said “get your t**s out, b****”.’ In her diary, she also recorded when women stayed overnight with Mr Collins. And she noted the comings and goings of male visitors, some of whom ‘wore baseball caps’. 'I could hear Mr Collins in his hot tub,’ she said. ‘The music changed to panpipes to which Mr Collins was occasionally shouting “Oh yes, oh yes”.’
Mr Collins, who is on incapacity benefit, was fined £100 for breaching the noise abatement order, and faces a further bill of £365 in legal costs after failing in an appeal.Update
In publishing Mrs Palmer's and Mr Collins' addresses (12 and 14 St Julian Grove, Colchester respectively) the Mail has probably ensured an anonymous supply of interesting electrical appliances for Mrs Palmer and a stream of intrigued female callers for Mr Collins - so win-win, really.
