POLICE are investigating after a man went into the ladies toilets at Tesco in Beccles and appeared to be taking photographs under the cubicle partition.

The incident took place at the Tesco store at George Westwood Way around noon on Friday.

A 22-year-old woman had taken her young daughter to the toilets at the store, which were busy. When a woman exited the cubicle in the middle the 22-year-old took her daughter in but moments later she noticed a hand under the partition wall with a mobile phone in with a camera lens pointing upwards. She pushed the phone away and the hand pulled back.

She exited the cubicle and warned other customers waiting to use the toilets that there was someone in the next door cubicle trying to take pictures. She then left the toilets and told her partner what had happened.

Another customer then pointed out a man exiting the toilets and the 22-year-old went to report the incident to security staff. The man was led away but then managed to evade security by claiming he felt unwell and running away.

Police are making enquiries to trace the offender, who is described as white, in his mid 20s to mid 30s, around 5ft 5ins tall, of slight build, with short brown straight hair and who was wearing jeans, trainers and a beige-coloured T-shirt with a large red design on the front.
