Christopher Townson denies swimming pool voyeurism

A man accused of filming a schoolgirl as she changed at a swimming pool has told a court he was looking for his daughter's hair clips.

Christopher Townson, of Jenkin Rise, Kendal, is accused of using his iPhone to record the 15-year-old at Holgate caravan park, near Carnforth, in 2011.

The 25-year-old told a jury at Carlisle Crown Court he was in the cubicle next to the girl because his daughter had got changed there earlier.

Mr Townson denies voyeurism.
