Cardiff teacher Gareth Williams admits toilet voyeurism

The deputy head teacher of a Cardiff secondary school has admitted hiding a camera to film five children using a toilet.

Gareth Williams, 47, from the Welsh medium school Ysgol Glantaf, pleaded guilty to three charges of voyeurism, which did not take place at the school.

Cardiff Magistrates' Court heard police recovered the camera, memory sticks containing video files and found images had been stored.

He was remanded in custody.

During the eight-minute hearing, Williams spoke only to confirm his name age, address and to enter guilty pleas.

The court was told police were still investigating and Williams, who was arrested last week, will be interviewed again.

District judge Bodfan Jenkins said the offences were so serious Williams would be remanded and sentenced at Cardiff Crown Court on 21 February.

Williams was suspended after his arrest.
