A DIVING school boss secretly filmed women for sexual kicks as they stripped and changed into scuba gear, Leeds Crown Court heard.
David Hepworth, 36, of Dewsbury, is accused of filming three customers, including a 13-year-old girl, as they tried on rubber dry suits at his shop in Leeds.
He denies three counts of voyeurism by recording private acts for sexual gratification, Leeds Crown Court heard.
Rupert Doswell, prosecuting, told the court three women, aged 13, 26 and 39, were filmed in July last year.
Hepworth had made appointments for all three to have `fittings' and told two of them to take off all their clothes, the court heard.
Mr Doswell said the youngest victim was filmed as she took off her skirt and put on a fleece-style inner suit and dry suit over her underwear and polo shirt.
Hepworth then came in
and zipped her into the outfit before leading her through stretching exercises to test the fit.
The second alleged victim came for a fitting on the same day. She told the court Hepworth asked her to take off all her clothes and put on a swimsuit, which she did.
The third complainant insisted she was also asked to fully strip, but decided to keep on her bra and thong as it was like wearing a bikini.
Fiona Dix-Dyer, defending, suggested that she was not asked to remove her underwear, but she said: "No, I was asked to take everything off."
The court heard the defendant was caught out when the BBC hired an underwater camera from his specialist shop, Bear Divers.
A Look North cameraman discovered the secret footage when he tried to use the video camera.
In police interviews Hepworth at first denied filming the women and said it must have been an accident.
He later changed his story, claiming equipment had been stolen and he had installed the camera to catch the culprit.
The case continues.
