A 27-year-old man from Folkestone who covertly filmed ‘upskirt’ videos of school children has been jailed for more than four years.

The alert was raised when Roshan Rai claimed he was a 14-year-old boy and encouraged an 11-year-old girl to post nude images of herself online.

A Paedophile Online Investigation Team then found thousands of indecent images and videos on his home computer and mobile phone.

A storage device seized from Rai’s bedroom also contained so-called ‘upskirt’ videos which he had taken of unsuspecting school children. Police also found a number of videos which appeared to have been taken covertly inside a communal changing area of a swimming pool, showing children as young as three.

At Canterbury Crown Court, Rai pleaded guilty to three counts of causing or inciting a child under 13 to engage in sexual activity, along with a charge of causing a child to watch a sexual act, a charge of outraging public decency (by taking “upskirt” pictures of children) and a charge of voyeurism.

He also admitted three counts of making indecent images of children.
