Outstanding

I would imagine if it wasn't for this he would be a candidate for a Darwin award.

I wonder how he is going to like having his picture in a compromising position posted all over the internet

@Irish donkey

You must die to get a Darwin award. Any awards granted to living organisms are invalid.

Unless you're advocating the death sentence for this, then...?

Well..

That's not strictly true - the criteria is to remove yourself from the gene pool so you can't procreate. The mainstay of Darwin Award winners do that indeed by killing themselves in various entertaining fashions, but one got the award while still alive because he used a bullet as a fuse, which heated up and proceeded to blow his nuts off (I think, it's been a while).

Having said this, active euthanasia would indeed be a somewhat harsh option to resolve Repetive Stain Injury.

*sigh*

Actually you must "remove yourself from the gene pool" to earn a darwan award. While this normally means a chat with St. Peter, it doesn't always... there are other ways to be sure you can't procreate!

How did a male manage to get into the ladies' changing room in the first place? Clothing shops I have visited usually have some sort of security person on guard outside to stop shoplifting. Shouldn't think he stands much chance of evasion with such a clear picture! Keep us all posted. I reckon he looks like Michael Barrymore - poor guy!

What's the problem?

It's obviously part of the Labour anti-crime initiative to crack down on shoplifting.

It will also allow NHS operatives to check on on how fat customers are so they can be given advice in store.

If you have nothing to hid, you have nothing to fear and I for one welcome this new initiave to keep me safe with open arms.

All the supermarkets round our way have generic changing rooms*, I assume this is the case here so El Reg's use of the term "ladies" may just be gutter press-tittilation** and not actually based on fact.

*BBC just lists it as a changing room

**Assumedly he wanted to video women changing but until he is caught and questioned this might not be the case - he might have really been after men or children.

Alternatively..

He couldn't come up with a better way to instant fame.

In that case, well done..

They saw him leave the... ladies?

That's what I thought...

but how did they catch or even look so quickly?

My first guess would have been, someone saw him leave a female changing room...

Brilliant!

I bet he's too scared to leave the house now!

One thing, though - is he REALLY standing on an ASDA shopping basket??

Can't understand it

Why would he want to peep on ladies trying on a new dress? It's not like many women take off ALL their clothes in the process of changing do they? If he really wants to see pictures of women in lingerie then all he has to do is go to Ann Summers or similar and pick up a catalog. Although, I must give him credit for not deciding to stick the camera in the ladies lavatories. That would just be wrong.

Flame, cos it's going to get pretty cosy where he'll end up if caught.

Obviously..

.. he needed this to go tits up. He wasn't going to ars* around.

I have to stop this, I could be here all day (which is more than can be said for the camera - or him).

Aaargh!

non-expiring dress

its a good job the police described what he was wearing as i could not see it in front of me... i'll keep my eyes open for someone dressed like that so because its soooo likely that he will stay dressed in the same clothes until captured....

Keeping the same clothes on?

Well... he was stupid enough to capture a great mugshot of himself, so who knows?

No you dunce - the description of the clothes is to jog the memories of people who might have seen someone wearing those clothes before.

Super: One doesn't have to die to win a Darwin award. If the photoed ladies catch him and cut off his goolies, that'd do it.

brimful: Ah yeah, but Ann Summers' models know they're being photographed. That's not "forbidden fruit".

Official CCTVin changing rooms

Didn't tesco get into trouble when official CCTV from it's changing rooms ended up on the net?

Did this guy just forget to register with the DPA?

So

Why didn't they just wait for him to go back and collect the camera at the end of the day? Presumably it isn't a completely wireless set-up.

Put him in a small room...

My question is...

Will he be smart enough to reduce his hard disk to dust and then distribute it in a way that it can never be reconstructed?

And will he be smart enough to unsecure his wireless network so that he can blame his neighbours for any embarrasing downloads or uploads. Although I dont think this defense will work.

I suspect forensics might find a little bit more material if they catch him quick, unless he failed on his first attempt.

And if anybody find the successful videos posted on the net send me the URL :)

Re: 44 year old man arrested

Time to get a picture of ASBO boy down the road. A little adjustment to make it look like a self picture before installation. Then tuck the camera into the changing room ceiling. One more troublemaker off the streets.
