A man from the Gordano Valley as been jailed for eight months for spying on women in a tanning salon.

Nikolas Heath, of Moor Lane in Clapton-in-Gordano, appeared in Bristol Crown Court on October 3 charged with six counts of voyeurism.

Heath, aged 55, was caught spying on a woman at Gloden Tanning Salon, in Whiteladies Road, Bristol, between May and December in 2015.

After a further investigation, the police found images of salon customers – taken withinout their knowledge – on Heath’s laptop and phone.

Heath pleaded guilty during a trial on August 14 this year.

Judge James Patrick handed Heath an eight-month prison sentence.

He was also told to register as a sex offender for 10 years and was handed a 10-year Sexual Harm Prevention Order, banning him from beauty and tanning salons.

His laptop and phone, containing the images, were destroyed.
