A man has appeared in court after being caught filming up women's skirts at Victoria Station in London.

It is thought Salem Al-Majali, 52, could have gathered footage of 1,000 women at public places in London as over 200 recordings were found at his home.

The engineer was caught in the act by a security guard, who saw him using cameras hidden in his rucksack at Victoria Station

According to the Daily Mail, Prosecutor Michael Phillips told Westminster Magistrates Court: "He committed multiple offences over a long period of time, it was very elaborate and well organised, and having looked at the video equipment at his home, there were no less than 200 recordings.'

"There were numerous images and footage of a similar nature that he had filmed at supermarkets, train stations, and other public places."

He was caught out on 21 July this year when a security guard noticed him behaving suspiciously in Marks & Spencer in Victoria Station.

The security guard followed him and called in police, who found two mini-cameras and a camcorder hidden inside his bag with "up-skirt" footage on it.

Mr Al-Majali, from Battersea, pleaded guilty on Thursday to one count of committing an act of outraging public decency, and was released on bail on the condition he does not use the Tube except to come to court, and does not carry recording devices with him.

He is due to be sentenced at the same court on Wednesday, 19 December.
