Christopher Townson guilty of swimming pool voyeurism

A man has been convicted of videoing a schoolgirl as she got undressed at a leisure centre in Cumbria.

Christopher Townson, 25, of Jenkin Rise, Kendal, used his phone to film the 15-year-old under a partition wall at a caravan park near Carnforth.

Townson, who denied voyeurism, claimed he went into the changing room to look for his daughter's hair clips.

At Carlisle Crown Court he was placed on the sex offenders register and will be sentenced on 7 June.
