A pervert secretly filmed a woman in a swimming pool changing room, it has been claimed.

The mother was changing her baby after a family swim session when she spotted "a black GoPro camera" appear over the top of the cubicle at Didcot Wave Leisure Centre on Sunday. 

A member of staff at the Mereland Road centre confirmed police have been informed as an investigation is launched.

The victim said she saw the camera removed as soon as she looked up and spotted it.

She quickly left the changing room and "knocked loudly" on the next-door changing room door but the occupant would not open it.

She waited outside for 10 minutes but the occupant got away when she had to return to her own cubicle to look after her baby who was crying, she said.

A spokesperson for Didcot Wave Leisure Pool and Gym said: “We are aware of a serious alleged incident at Didcot Wave Leisure Pool and Gym on Sunday February 4.

“We are supporting the police and an investigation is now ongoing. 

"We are therefore unable to comment further at this stage.”

Thames Valley Police has been contacted for comment but a spokesman for the force's press office said he was unable to confirm any details on the incident.
