A pervert used a hidden spy camera in his shoelaces for filming women’s skirts in supermarkets to catch him being a pervert. He was sentenced.
After being suspiciously spotted at a Tesco branch in Beeston by a customer, Adam George-Wood (41), was taken into custody by a Tesco security officer.
The shopper noticed George-Wood carrying a shopping cart containing a phone that was upside down and placed it below the victim’s skirt.
He immediately alerted George-Wood to his concerns and challenged George-Wood. George-Wood was eventually detained and taken into custody by the store security officer.

He was jailed for six months at Nottingham Crown Court on Tuesday and made subject of a sexual harm prevention order.
He was also added to the sex offenders’ registry for a period of ten years.
Detective Constable Laura Gray from Nottinghamshire Police said that “Upskirting” is a disgusting invasion on someone’s privacy that can be extremely distressing for the victim.
“George-Wood displayed a brazen disregard of his victims as he collected large amounts of invasive videos without the consent or knowledge his victims.
“Had he not been challenged while he was I have no doubt his offending would continue.
“For that reason, I would like praise the actions taken by the staff and security personnel who helped to detain George Woodward and bring his offending under control.
“I would encourage any other women who believe they might have been victims of up skirting, to come forward and inform the police.
“We will investigate, and we will take very firm actions against perpetrators if possible.”
