Ms Dixon says South Yorkshire Police failed to offer her a full personal apology

A nude sunbather is suing police for £200,000 after an officer was jailed for using a force helicopter to film her in her garden.

Tracy Dixon has issued a writ claiming police invaded her privacy and caused her distress by refusing to reveal full details of how often she had been spied on.

The action comes after former constable Adrian Pogmore, 53, was jailed for a year in 2017.

Writ: Tracy Dixon took the step after feeling distressed when she had her privacy invaded

He admitted four charges of misconduct in public office by using the South Yorkshire Police helicopter for ‘sexual spying’ with a high-powered camera capable of reading a number plate from two miles away.

Pogmore, who was described as ‘sex obsessed’ and was a member of a swingers’ club, also filmed Ms Dixon’s three daughters, who were aged 18, 15 and eight at the time.

Sentencing him at Sheffield Crown Court, Judge Peter Kelson QC said: ‘You quite literally considered yourself above the law. You used a £2 million helicopter, which costs something like £1,000 an hour to run, to advance your sexual curiosities.’

Two police pilots and two police observers were cleared of helping Pogmore make the films, but one officer, PC Lee Walls, still faces disciplinary proceedings. The force has admitted liability for the actions of Pogmore on August 23, 2007, but denies he filmed the family on other occasions.

Tweed Byron police target nudists at clothes-optional beach

Police are targeting nudists on a “clothes-optional” strip of beach at Byron Bay after a spate of lurid sexual behaviour.

But the local council and National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) are passing the buck over who should take responsibility for alerting the public about the nude beach at Tyagarah.
