After pleading guilty to voyeurism, creating indecent photos of a child, and possessing extreme pornographic images, a 57-year-old plumber was sentenced to a year in prison.

A plumber who fixed secret cameras in clients’ toilets for s£xual satisfaction, jailed

Before his arrest, James Hulme had a tendency of installing hidden cameras in the bathrooms of clients who hired him, photographing them while they used the facilities without their knowledge.

According to, police discovered a number of cameras and 302 obscene photographs of youngsters, as well as those involving animals, after his detention.

On October 27, a Nottingham Crown Court sentenced the perverted plumber from Sherwood, Nottinghamshire, to prison.

One of his victims discovered a spy camera attached to a sink in the downstairs toilet that he had put in June 2018.

Hulme confessed and fled when confronted by the woman.

Following his arrest, the elderly plumber admitted to installing hidden cameras in the toilets of “five or six additional” customers for sexual gratification.

According to the Sun, PC Jonathan Cooper said: “This was an invasion of privacy in a pre-meditated manner for his own sexual gratification.

“Hulme will have to live with this shame for the rest of his life. These offenses were gross and his victims will no doubt live with this forever.

“I hope this outcome serves not only as a comfort to Hulme’s victims and their families but also as a warning to others who might be tempted to engage in voyeurism,” he continued.

“His convictions for making indecent images of a child and possessing extreme pornographic images should also serve as a stark warning to others that such criminality does have consequences.

“Behind every one of these sickening videos and images is a vulnerable child being sexually abused by an adult in various parts of the world.

“The physical and emotional impact of that abuse can and does have a devastating impact on those children as they grow older and we are determined to protect other children from a similar fate.”
