A civilian based at Belfast's Antrim Road police station has quit his job as a CCTV operator after being questioned about spying on a woman.

Police confirmed on Wednesday that officers interviewed the man, aged 49, about alleged voyeurism.

A file will be submitted to the Public Prosecution Service.

The man was questioned about using the surveillance camera to monitor the movements of a woman at a neighbouring house.

He was employed by a company that manages the CCTV operation at police stations across Northern Ireland. He was immediately suspended and has now left his job.

A spokesman for the PSNI said: "A 49-year-old male has been arrested in the north Belfast area on suspicion of voyeurism.

"The man has been released pending a report to the Public Prosecution Service."
