  • Julian Roddis used secret recording equipment to watch women take off clothes

A massage therapist who secretly recorded more than 900 women undressing using a hidden camera has been jailed for four years. 

Julian Roddis, 50, used recording equipment disguised as a clock to gather 2,000 images of his clients over two years.

Roddis, of Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, would watch the videos by plugging a USB attached to the clock into his laptop.

His crimes came to light when one of the women became suspicious of the clock and researched it online – where she found an identical device with a hidden camera.

Roddis was arrested and the clock was seized. Police quickly uncovered 2,000 video files. 

Roddis admitted filming the women and was charged with nine counts of voyeurism.

He pleaded guilty at Peterborough Magistrates’ Court on April 30 and was yesterday sentenced to four years in prison.

Detective Constable Helen Keighley, who investigated, said: ‘Many will read this case and think of what happened to these women as nothing short of a nightmare.

‘I can only imagine the woman’s horror when she discovered the clock in the massage room was in fact something much more sinister.

‘Roddis had set up working as a masseuse but abused hundreds of women’s trust by privately filming them.

‘I hope the conviction gives the victims in this case a sense of closure and allows them to move on.’
