An alleged voyeur has been caught on camera apparently using his phone to take photographs up a woman’s skirts in the middle of a busy Boots store.
Police are hunting a man who was filmed on CCTV kneeling on the ground before he took out his mobile and positioned it between the women’s legs.
The suspect was later apprehended by security, and told to delete the images he’d taken and leave the branch in South London.
Caught on camera: This video appears to show a man taking pictures up a woman’s skirt in Boots
Scotland Yard has now issued footage of the incident last month in a bid to track down the man, who appears to be in his late 20s.
The CCTV appears to show him pretending to browse products on a low shelf in the Colliers Wood store, while holding his phone in his hand.
He twice leans over to an unsuspecting woman and briefly holds the phone below her skirt to take a photograph.
The Metropolitan Police said in a statement this morning: ‘At 12.35pm on Thursday, November 5 a man, believed to be aged in his late 20s, was seen to walk around the Boots store in the Tandem Centre, Tandem Way, Colliers Wood without selecting any product.

‘The man was caught on CCTV pretending to look at products behind a woman and then put his hand between the woman’s legs and take pictures up her skirt on his mobile phone.
‘He later returned and took further pictures of the same woman.
‘A security guard at the store challenged the suspect, told him to delete the images and asked him to leave the store.
Appeal: Police are now hoping to speak to the man about his alleged crimes
