Police have issued a fetching self-portrait of a man who was caught on the miniature camera he put in the ladies changing room of a Cheshire supermarket.

The Peeping Tom caught on his own cameraA police statement explains: "Police in Warrington are keen to trace a man who placed a small camera in a fitting room at Asda in the Westbrook centre in Warrington on December 19 at around 5pm. The device was placed in the light fitting and was in place for 30 minutes before it was discovered.

"Unfortunately for the man, he forgot to turn off the camera whilst placing it, and forensic examination of the data card shows him placing it in situ."

Police describe the man as "approx 30 - 35 years of age, of slim build smartly dressed wearing a long dark coat with a fleece type jumper underneath with a white circular logo on the left breast of fleece", and ask anyone who can identify him to call detective constable Julie Cassie on 0845 4580 000. ®
