A Napier man used a spy camera to film up the skirts of young women, adding to his collection of more than 600 photos.

Gregor Booth, 44, secretly recorded and photographed women as they walked and shopped around Napier between October and December last year. He also took photos of young women at a beauty pageant, the Napier District Court was told yesterday.

He used the images to build up a collection of more than 600 photographs, 100 of which were taken up the skirts of three young women aged between 15 and 20.

Booth was caught recording girls at Hastings Splash Planet on December 31. Police found a laptop and camera in his car. He admitted his offending.

Booth, who had previously pleaded guilty to making an intimate visual recording, was sentenced to four months' home detention.

Judge Geoff Rea made an order to destroy all the images and the laptop used to store them.
