CCTV staff accused of voyeurism
Four council workers who are accused of using CCTV cameras to peep into a woman's home have appeared in court charged with voyeurism.

The four worked as security officers at Sefton Council, Merseyside.

At Liverpool Crown Court on Tuesday, Mark Summerton, 37, pleaded guilty to voyeurism and attempted voyeurism.

Kevin Judge, 42, David Welsh, 40 and Vincent Broderick, 52, all denied one charge of voyeurism and a second charge of misconduct in public office.

Broderick also faces a further charge of attempted voyeurism.

Street cameras

The men were arrested in November last year after allegations they had used street CCTV cameras to spy on a woman in her home.

The case was adjourned for a directions hearing at Liverpool Crown Court on 5 October.

Mr Judge, from Crosby, Mr Broderick, from Bootle and Mr Welsh, from Anfield, are expected to stand trial at the same court on 5 December.

Summerton, from Kirkdale, will be sentenced following the conclusion of the case.

All were given unconditional bail.
