Davis admitted to using his phone to record videos underneath women's clothes on all three occasions.

He was sentenced to carry out a community order and rehabilitation activity as well as a curfew with an electronic tag.

Police Constable James Waite, from Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Nottinghamshire Police takes all reports of sexual offences seriously and investigates them thoroughly.

“Upskirting is a disgusting invasion of someone’s privacy and I am pleased that action has been taken.

“I’d like to say thank you to the members of the public who helped identify Davis and report him to us.”
