Last Friday, with its moored recreational boats and mobility scooters sparkling in the midday sun, it looked like a sleepy, quiet city to expect from this result. But after Theresa May's resignation announcement, the mood […]

A PERVERT project manager who upskirted a woman at a train station has been banned from having any device that can take pictures. Neil Abbott took the picture of his victim while she queued for food at Liverpool Street station last August – cops then found more than 30 other upskirting shots on his phone. Neil Abbott has been banned from having any device capable of taking pictures in public The 32-year-old has now been been from having any item that can take photos in public, after he admitted he got a kick from looking at the images. Earlier this month Abbott was sentenced to a three year community order requiring 280 hours of unpaid work and 12 days of rehabilitation activity. He was also ordered to pay £1,000 in compensation to his victim. Abbott didn’t attend his latest hearing at Westminster Magistrates Court and District Judge Parkash Aujla imposed a sexual harm prevention order in his absence. He said: “He is not here and we have received no indication, so we will proceed in his absence. “I have read the application and have no reason not to make the order.” Earlier Simon Maughan, prosecuting, said: “A 20-year-old female was in the area of Liverpool Street Station along with a witness on 25 August 2018 at around 11.30pm. “She had a short denim skirt on with no tights on.” ‘HE WASN’T RUSHING, AS IF HE’D DONE IT BEFORE’ A shocked witness who saw Abbott join the queue at Mi Casa burrito stand said in a statement read to the court: “At this time I noticed a white male arrive. However in the distance between me and the victim he jumped the queue. “I thought he might have known the two because he jumped the queue. “He took his mobile phone from his left front pocket to take a picture from under the victim’s skirt, standing behind her. “The screen was facing up and he took the photo with the front facing camera. “He wasn’t rushing, as if he had done it before.” The witness told the victim that Abbott had snapped her and she began to chase him in the station, alerting security staff as she did so. After his arrest he said “I have learned my lesson, can’t I just delete the pictures?” Abbott, from Romford, admitted one count of outraging public decency.

A SCHOOLBOY who filmed up two teachers’ skirts had an “emotional and physical” impact on the women’s lives, a court heard. Timothy Boomer, now 18, was sentenced to a 20-hour restorative order after he was convicted on five counts of outraging public decency. Timothy Boomer, now 18, was sentenced to a 20-hour restorative order District Judge Michael Ranaghan told Enniskillen youth court the young man needed to “understand the serious and significant impact of his actions”. During the hearing Boomer, now a student in Wales, sat in front of the two teachers in the public gallery. The judge, who reached his decision together with a panel of magistrates, added: “There has been clear and genuine remorse from Mr Boomer which appears to have strengthened with time.” Afterwards, the NASUWT teaching union called for law changes to make upskirting a specific offence in Northern Ireland. The union said the two women had been left with post-traumatic stress disorder. It also heavily criticised how Enniskillen Royal Grammar School handled the issue after Boomer was made a prefect for moving images art after the videos were discovered. In March, Boomer was found guilty by the panel of committing acts of a lewd, obscene and disgusting nature and outraging public decency by making the video recordings. ‘DIFFERENT PERSON’ The incidents happened at the school in 2015 and 2016 when Boomer was aged 14 and 15. The offences came to light when he was 16, and he turned 18 during the legal proceedings. His defence barrister, Frank O’Donoghue QC, stressed that Boomer is now a different person, four years on from the first offence. The lawyer said Boomer had never denied committing the offences and appreciated they were “offensive” and “morally wrong”. Mr O’Donoghue said: “He’s a very different person from the person he was at the time of the commission of these offences. “He has a deep sense of remorse and shame.” The NI Public Prosecution Service initially decided not to pursue the case, amid uncertainty about whether a school was a public place. That move was set for a judicial review, but prosecutors changed their mind and mounted the prosecution before a High Court case was heard. Outside court, Justin McCamphill, national official for the NASUWT, said the prosecution was “groundbreaking” as it had established that schools were public places. He said: “Our two members have a sense of relief that the case is finally over. “They have felt vindicated in what they have had to fight for. They have had to fight for two years to have this case heard in the first place. “They are feeling content that the conviction has taken place but they are now resolved that they are going to push for a change in legislation across Northern Ireland so others in future don’t have to go through what they have gone through. “These five incidents when the members were videoed and how they were dealt with has led to our members suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. “It has had an immense impact on them in relation to how they actually go about their daily lives. [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN NEWS” posts_category=”2″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] “They feel vulnerable, they worry that people maybe out there have seen these videos and it is something that is always on their minds. “There are big questions in relation to how the school handled this situation.” The school has been contacted for comment.

Timothy Boomer was sentenced today after he took the indecent images and videos of his teachers when he was 14 and 15 (Picture: PA) A teenager who took ‘upskirt’ pictures and videos of his teachers has been ordered to spend 20 hours learning about the effect of his crimes. Timothy Boomer, 18, has been convicted of five counts of outraging public decency after he recorded footage under the skirt of two of his teachers at Co Fermanagh school, Northern Ireland, in 2015 and 2016. In April, England and Wales passed a law to make upskirting a criminal offence in its own right under the Voyeurism Act. The law was passed after campaigner Gina Martin spent months fighting for legislative change after she fell victim to the crime. Had Boomer been convicted in England or Wales he could have faced up to two years in jail – with the most serious offenders put on the Sex Offenders Register. But Boomer was today ordered to complete an attendance sentence order at a hearing at Enniskillen youth court. Boomer appeared at Enniskillen youth court today (Picture: PA) During the course of the order, Boomer will spend 20 hours with the Youth Justice Agency focusing on the impact of his actions on the victims. Boomer was 14 and 15 and a pupil at the school when he committed the crimes but were only reported when he was 16. In March, Boomer was found guilty by a panel of magistrates of committing acts of a lewd, obscene and disgusting nature and outraging public decency by making the covert video recordings.
