Thomas Copping, the owner of a B&B in Wales, used a hidden camera to spy on his guests.
The camera was positioned in bathrooms to record the guests while they were using the sink, bath and toilet. The films were then copied on to CDs or DVDs using his computer. He was detected when one of his guests spotted the camera and traced it.
In court, Copping admitted taking and making indecent pictures of children and received three years community rehabilitation order and five years on a sex offenders programme. In addition he paid £160 costs and his equipment was seized.
