Detectives want to trace a peeping Tom who placed a camera in a unisex changing room - and unwittingly photographed himself doing it.

The balding thirtysomething fitted the camera in a light fitting in the changing room at Asda in Warrington's Westbrook Centre at about 5pm on December 19.

He snapped two images of himself which Cheshire Police issued in a bid to trace him.

A police spokesman said: "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.

"The device was placed in a light fitting and was in place for 30 minutes before being discovered by staff.

"Unfortunately for the man he did not turn off the camera while placing it in situ and forensic examination of the data card shows an image of him while doing this."
