The 48-year-old appeared in Manly Local Court on Wednesday, where he was granted bail under strict conditions.

He must report to Tweed Heads Police Station everyday, he’s not allowed to have a mobile phone or any electronic device that can take photos, and he’s not allowed at airports.

EARLIER @ 12.00 PM | A Queensland man is facing court today, charged with allegedly filming up the skirts of attendants on a flight from the Gold Coast yesterday.

Police will allege that the 48-year-old man inappropriately filmed flight attendants while they were assisting other passengers on a flight from the Gold Coast to Sydney.

It’ll then be alleged that the man attended an attraction in Sydney later in the day, where he allegedly filmed two teenagers – 15 and 17-years-old – while following them through exhibits.

Police say a fellow visitor was suspicious of the man and notified security.

The 48-year-old was arrested around 1.30pm and taken to Chatswood Police Station, where his photo and digital camera were seized.

Numerous videos and images of ‘up-skirting’ were allegedly found on the devices.

The man’s since been charged with possessing child abuse material, five counts of filming private parts without consent, two counts of attempting to film private parts without consent, and three counts of aggravated attempts to film private parts without consent of a person under the age of 16.

He was refused bail and is set to appear before Manly Local Court today.
