Stu­dent guilty of up­skirt movies


A STU­DENT who filmed up-skirt shots of girls in a shop­ping cen­tre has ap­peared in court.

Scott Dixon, 24, made more than 50 se­cret films on his phone in El­don Square, New­cas­tle, un­til he was caught in Au­gust last year.

The ar­chi­tec­ture stu­dent was nabbed when a fe­male shop­per caught him film­ing up an­other un­sus­pect­ing lady’s skirt in Top­shop.

She re­ported him to po­lice who cor­nered him out­side the store and found 25 movies on the mo­bile.

Dixon, of Jar­row, South Ty­ne­side, pleaded guilty at New­cas­tle Mag­is­trates’ Court to six counts of out­rag­ing pub­lic de­cency in­volv­ing seven fe­male vic­tims.

Dur­ing in­ter­view, Dixon ad­mit­ted tak­ing videos for his own sex­ual grat­i­fi­ca­tion.

Mag­is­trates ad­journed the case un­til next month for the prepa­ra­tion of pre-sen­tence re­ports.

Dixon was re­leased on un­con­di­tional bail un­til that time.
