A PENSIONER who secretly filmed young girls as they showered in his bathroom has won a reduction in his prison sentence.

Tom Cole, 68, who was originally jailed for three years at London's Southwark Crown Court in March, had the term cut to two years by judges at the Court of Appeal, yesterday.

He had installed a covert camera in the ceiling and filmed two girls, aged 10 and 15, as they undressed and showered at the house in Sidcup.

At his appeal, two judges considered that the total of three years was "too much".

This comes after he pleaded guilty to offences of voyeurism, downloading indecent images of children aged seven to 14, and possessing extreme pornography.
