A man who used his mobile phone to film up the skirts of dozens of women at a Cambridgeshire shopping centre has been jailed.

Nigel Matt was caught by security guards at Queensgate Shopping Centre in Peterborough filming under the skirt of one victim in May.

Police then searched the 56-year-old's home and found 34 handheld recordings of women, dating back to July 2017.

Matt, from Peterborough, admitted outraging public decency and was jailed for 20 months.

Peterborough Crown Court heard that, while on his lunch break from work, Matt would go to the shopping centre and select women he found attractive.

He would then then follow them up an escalator to illegally film them.

“Matt is a prolific offender with a string of offences spanning almost a year.

“I hope that this sentence acts as a deterrent to others who may consider similar actions.”
