A MAN has been made to sign the sex offenders register for five years after upskirting women in Oxford.

Ismail Ay, of Strathmore Close, Carterton, secretly took two photographs under women's legs on Longwall Street, on February 25.

The 29-year-old captured their genitals and underwear, things he wouldn't have been able to see otherwise, for his own sexual gratification.

Upskirting was made illegal in England last year under the Voyeurism Act.

On March 20, the 29-year-old appeared at Oxford Magistrates Court where he admitted the charges.

He was also made subject to a community order and as part of that must take part in an ‘accredited programme’ for 31 days.

He will also be made to do 150 hours of unpaid work in the next 12 months and must pay a victim surcharge fee of £90 and court costs of £85.
