A man who used his mobile phone to film up the skirts of strangers in a shopping centre on his lunch break has been jailed for 20 months.
Nigel Matt, 56, was caught by security guards using an improvised recording device to film under the skirt of a female victim at Queensgate shopping centre in Peterborough in May.
Thirty-four handheld recordings dating back to July 2017 were found at his home by officers.
While on his lunch break from work, Matt would go to the shopping centre and select women he found attractive.
He would then then follow them up an escalator to illegally film them.
Matt pleaded guilty to outraging public decency at Peterborough Crown Court, admitting that he saved the footage to watch again later.
Matt, from Peterborough, also faced further charges of voyeurism and taking and possessing indecent images of children for which he was also sentenced.
Matt spent 10 months selecting victims at this shopping centre in order to film them and then watch the footage later
DC Victoria Speirs said: ‘Matt is a prolific offender with a string of offences spanning almost a year.
‘I hope that this sentence acts as a deterrent to others who may consider similar actions.’
