Angus Diggle, the solicitor jailed for attempted rape after a Highland ball, is due to appear before the Solicitors' Disciplinary Tribunal next Thursday, it was learned yesterday.

He hit the headlines at his Old Bailey trial in August 1993 when he was said to have pounced on his victim, a 25-year-old Edinburgh solicitor, wearing only the frilly cuffs from his traditional Scottish outfit, his glasses and a green condom.

He had escorted the woman to a St Andrew's Day Ball at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane. He was said to have later told police: "I have spent pounds 200 on her. Why can't I do what I did to her?" He was jailed for three years, reduced to two on appeal, and released after one year in Leyhill Open Prison.
