A MAN has been jailed for filming women in bedrooms and bathrooms across the country using hidden cameras.

Edward Parker, 29, installed cameras at private addresses in Bristol, Nottinghamshire, Sheffield and Hampshire in order to film women.

He admitted 16 charges, including 12 of observing a person doing a private act.

Parker, of Pitville Circus Road, Cheltenham was jailed for three years at Bristol Crown Court yesterday (Friday).

He was made subject of an indefinite sexual harm prevention order and placed on the sex offenders register indefinitely.

Passing sentence, Judge Douglas Field said Parker secretly filmed women for his own "perverted sexual gratification" and that the offences had "deeply affected" his victims.
