Upskirting is now a criminal offense in England and Wales after campaigners lobbied for years for the UK government to outlaw the practice.
The new legislation means that individuals convicted of photographing or videoing underneath a person's clothing without their knowledge for the purpose of sexual gratification or causing humiliation or distress face up to two years in prison.
