A GOLD medal winning athlete who represented Anglesey in the Island Games has has today (Thursday) admitted 13 offences of voyeurism after admitting putting a camera in toilets.

Coach Daniel Anthony Chadwick-Jones, 29, of Bretton Lane, Bretton, near Chester, was accused of installing the camera in toilets where gymnasts – including youngsters – would get changed.

The allegations related to 2018 and 2019.

Prosecutor Sarah Marsh told magistrates at Caernarfon: "The defendant was in a position of trust. He worked as a coach. He utilised the toilets knowing individuals were going to use the facilities.”

Those recorded had been unaware of what he was doing and two were aged 17.

The lawyer said, due to the seriousness, the case should be dealt with by a crown court judge.

“This is a man they will have looked up to and trusted and he’s breached that in no uncertain terms. He’s previous convictions but nothing of a related matter,” she added.

Defence solicitor Simon Sargent said Chadwick-Jones accepted the case was extremely serious. “To his credit Mr Chadwick-Jones has accepted his responsibility, he’s entered his guilty pleas.

“That will be a relief to him but also a relief to those affected by his actions,” Mr Sargent added.

The magistrates decided their sentencing powers were insufficient.

They bailed Chadwick-Jones until later this month at Caernarfon crown court. A pre-sentence report was ordered.
