Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

A FOR­MER coun­cil worker has ad­mit­ted us­ing se­cret cam­eras hid­den in staff toi­lets to spy on col­leagues.

Liam Gorm­ley, 32, com­mit­ted the seedy crimes be­tween July 2010 to July 2012 and in­volved the use of cam­eras hid­den in pub­lic places such as toi­lets and chang­ing rooms.

These were said to in­clude New­cas­tle Civic Cen­tre, Dance City and Sports Cen­tral in New­cas­tle, as well as the But­lins hol­i­day camp in Skeg­ness, Lin­colnshire.

The voyeurism charges al­lege that Gorm­ley, for the pur­pose of ob­tain­ing sex­ual grat­i­fi­ca­tion, ob­served an­other per­son do­ing a pri­vate act, know­ing the per­son did not con­sent to be­ing ob­served.

Gorm­ley, now of, New­cas­tle, but pre­vi­ously of Blyth, Northum­ber­land, made a brief ap­pear­ance at New­cas­tle Crown Court to plead guilty to 27 charges, in­clud­ing voyeurism, of the 29 charges against him.

Judge John Mil­ford QC ad­journed the case for sen­tenc­ing on Oc­to­ber 26 to al­low for the prepa­ra­tion of pre-sen­tence and psy­chi­atric re­ports. DON’T risk drown­ing next time you travel by boat. Sim­ply wear bi­cy­cle clips and fill your trousers with

ping pong balls.
