When I showed the phone number to Paula she claimed it was not the female collegue with a statement "that a lot of people live in the village of Ruabon" I did trust her on that occasion wrongly

You are entirely free to raise any issues at the investigatory meeting or the subsequent disciplinary if it gets that far. These meetings are there not just for the employer to find out more details about the allegations but also for you to raise any relevant issues that relate to the matter that is investigated. So if you believe that the employer has done something wrong in relation to this or there are things that could mitigate your alleged guilt then by all means raise them - you have the right to a voice at these hearings too so use it.
