A CARETAKER who used hidden cameras to film up schoolgirl’s skirts and spy in the female teacher’s toilet was jailed for three years last week.

Former taxi driver Darren Elliott, 36, placed “covert devices” around the Lincolnshire school to record still and moving images for his own sexual gratification.

Among his victims were three teachers who were filmed for up to 40 seconds after Elliott set up a secret camera in the ladies toilet, Lincoln Crown Court heard.

Phil Howes, prosecuting, said: “The device was placed over the partition. It was very deliberate and very risky.”

The court was told Elliott also placed covert devices on the ground and under desks to take “upskirt” photos of pupils at the primary school, north of Lincoln, which can not be named for legal reasons.

At the same school, in Lincolnshire County Council’s jurisdiction, Elliott took shots up the skirts of three school workers showing their legs and thighs.
