Pervert caught upskirting using secret camera hidden in his shoe

A serial “upskirter” today admitted secretly filming under female’s skirts with a camera hidden in his shoe.

At a previous court hearing prosecutor Gareth Parry said a large number of cases had been discovered following a 1940s festival at Colwyn Bay .

Today at Mold Crown Court  Kevin Bacchus, 64, of Balkwell Avenue, North Shields, admitted five counts of outraging public decency by filming under skirts at an unknown location in 2015 and at Colwyn Bay last April.

He also pleaded guilty to taking 111 indecent photographs of children between August 2011 and April 2018, and making two child porn images in the highest category of seriousness between 2007 and April 2018.

Judge Rhys Rowlands bailed him until May 8 for a pre-sentence report.

Bacchus, formerly of Rhyl, was warned that custody would be uppermost in the judge’s mind.

But Judge Rowlands added: ”You have pleaded guilty. It will be reflected in a reduction in the sentence when you return to court.”
