Man confesses to filming up womens’ skirts at Glastonbury Festival

Paul Reditt, 45, has been sentenced to a three-year community order

A man has confessed to filming up womens’ skirts with his mobile phone at Glastonbury Festival.

Paul Reditt, 45, has admitted to using his phone to take illicit images at the festival two years ago, as well as at an event in Newcastle, reports the Sentinel. Pleading guilty to two charges of outraging public decency, Reditt has been sentenced to a three year community order. He has also been placed on the sex offenders’ register for five years and will have to pay £535 costs.

After being spotted filming at a family event in Newcastle last May he was arrested. Police then searched his computer and found a host of covertly shot images. “Thirty-six images were filmed by the defendant which showed underneath the skirts of females,” explained prosecutor Paul Farrow. Reditt told the court he had also filmed up the skirts of ‘random females’ at Glastonbury in 2013, but went on to say that he did not know what had happened to the images he recorded at the world-famous music festival.

Speaking at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court, Judge David Fletcher commented: “It is inconceivable and extremely difficult for me to understand the behaviour you were getting yourself involved with on these occasions. This has had a completely devastating effect on your family. You need to come to terms with this and do something about your behaviour.”
