A MAN installed a spy camera to capture images of a woman sleeping in an address where children training for AFC Bournemouth's youth teams have stayed, a court heard.

Trevor Hebron, of Queen's Park Gardens in Bournemouth, filmed the woman on occasions between January 2017 and August 2018 at a private home in the town.

He was arrested after his wife discovered the films on a tablet computer.

Hebron, 42, admitted a single count of voyeurism at Poole Magistrates' Court on Friday.

David Finney, prosecuting, said the victim was captured in "multiple videos" of her sleeping. In some of the footage, she was topless.

"[Hebron] admitted to [his wife] he had taken them," Mr Finney said.

"He said he enjoyed the thrill of not being caught.

"His wife reported him to the police.

"Officers attended the property and he was arrested and cautioned. He said, 'I've been a ****ing idiot'."

The victim, who was "completely unaware" she was being recorded, told police she felt "shocked and violated" by the footage, it was heard.

Mr Finney told the court the offence happened in an address where foreign students have previously stayed.

Members of AFC Bournemouth's youth teams have also previously been hosted in rooms at the property.

There is no indication any offence was committed against anyone but the adult woman, it was heard.

"There is a significant degree of planning here," Mr Finney said.

Hebron, who wore a grey suit in the dock, was bailed to allow officials from the Probation Service to prepare a pre-sentence report.

He will return to the magistrates' court on October 21 to be sentenced.
