CCTV 'peeping tom' trial begins
Two council workers who are accused of using CCTV cameras to peep into a woman's home have gone on trial.

Kevin Judge, 42, of Crosby, and David Welsh, 40, of Anfield, allegedly used a street camera to spy on a woman in her home in November 2004.

Both men deny a charge of voyeurism and Mr Welsh denies a second charge of misconduct in public office.

They were working as security officers for Sefton Council, in Merseyside, when the alleged incident took place.

Mr Judge and Mr Welsh appeared at Liverpool Crown Court on Monday.

A jury was sworn in and the prosecution will open its case on 6 December.

A third man, 52-year-old Vincent Broderick, of Bootle, admitted misconduct in public office.
