Police release picture of voyeur who accidentally videoed himself installing hidden camera in Starbucks toilet

When you install a hidden camera, it’s usually to film other people.

But one voyeur slipped up when he captured his own face on camera while installing a hidden camera in a Starbucks toilet.

The device was seized by police in the Starbucks in Vauxhall, south London, close to the headquarters of MI6, after a member of the public found it in a ceiling grate. They believe it had been in place for a maximum of four weeks last year.

But the person who put it there may have caught themselves out after detectives released an image of the man they believe put the camera there as part of their investigation.
