Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

A PEN­SIONER rigged up a hid­den cam­era in his bath­room to film two 16-year-old vis­i­tors as they took show­ers, a court heard.

Vic­tor Mor­gan, 71, claims he set up the cam­corder be­cause he was wor­ried about the two girls steal­ing his soap, Ex­eter Crown Court was told.

He recorded a 13-minute clip which started with an im­age of his arm putting the cam­era in place.

Mor­gan, of Paign­ton, De­vion, de­nies two counts of voyeurism.

Pros­e­cut­ing, Richard Crabb said Mor­gan filmed the girls, both 16 at the time, when they were stay­ing at his house be­fore go­ing to a Christ­mas party in De­cem­ber 2010.

He said: “There is no doubt the girls did not con­sent to be­ing filmed or that they had been do­ing a pri­vate act in a locked bath­room.

“If he was in­ter­ested in toi­letries, why not film the toi­letries?

“Why film the shower and keep it?

“You can be sure there was one thing on his mind when he made and viewed that movie, and it wasn’t soap.”

The trial con­tin­ues.
