A fifty-six year old man has been charged with three counts of attempted voyeurism, following alleged incidents at an Armagh leisure centre.

John Kerr of Derryfubble Road, Dungannon is accused of attempting to observe unknown persons doing a private act for sexual gratification.

The offences are alleged to have occurred on 26, 29 and 30 September at the Orchard Leisure Centre.

A police officer told Armagh Magistrates Court the charges could be connected.

Kerr was remanded on continuing bail and ordered to return to court next month.

Police were called in by staff on Friday 30 September who had observed a male acting suspiciously in the changing area. He had been noted on two previous days and staff moved swiftly when he appeared on the third occasion.

Staff deployed the Leisure Watch safe-guarding protocol which led to an arrest.

Police confirmed they returned to the leisure centre the day after the detection to interview witnesses and secure CCTV evidence.
