POLICE IN LONDON have released CCTV images of a man suspected of taking photos up a woman’s skirt.

Detectives investigating the allegation say a man believed to be in his late 20s had pretended to look at products behind a woman in a Boots store before putting his hand between her legs and taking pictures up her skirt.

The incident happened at 12.35pm on 5 November at a shopping centre in Colliers Wood, a residential area in southwest London.

The suspect was challenged by a security guard at the store, who told him to delete the images and leave the premises, according to police.

The man has been described as slim, white and six feet tall with short brown hair and blue eyes.

He was wearing a white Adidas t-shirt and navy blue tracksuit bottoms with brown shoes on the day in question.
