She said: "He said he did it for the challenge of getting away with it. He accepted it was wrong for him to do it."

Mountney, formerly of Fakenham, admitted a charge of voyeurism and was jailed 10 months and placed on the sex offender's register for 10 years.

Isobel Ascherson, for Mountney, said: "There is no doubt he understands the seriousness of what he has done."

Jailing him, Judge Anthony Bate told him what he had done was a gross invasion of privacy.
