A pervert spotted upskirting a woman in a Tube station was caught and jailed within 24 hours, police have revealed.

Martin Stone, 62, recorded a woman while standing behind her on an escalator at Bank Underground station in central London.

Stone, who was visiting the UK from Israel, was arrested outside the station by an officer who followed him and found him watching footage of the woman’s legs and skirt on his phone.

During a search a spy camera pen, two mobile phones, two oyster cards, and a camera was found.

In a police interview, he admitted he covered the flash on his phone with Sellotape to avoid detection while he was recording the victim unknowingly.

He declined to answer when asked if he received any sexual gratification from his behaviour.

Detective Chief Inspector Sarah White said: ‘Stone’s vile predatory behaviour is evident from his targeted actions and specialist equipment.

‘Upskirting is a sickening invasion of privacy and this result sends a clear message on how quickly we will act against this disgusting form of sexual offending.

‘We have plain clothes officers conducting patrols like this every day across network. Our officers are on the network looking out for you, whether you see them or not, and we will take action.’
