Lorraine had taken her five children to the water park when she noticed a man filming and taking photographs around the pools, including the area where her children were playing.

Concerned about the man’s actions, the water park’s security intervened and called the attention of Staffordshire Police.

They requested the man to cease filming, but he failed to comply with the rules and was subsequently escorted off the premises.

Lorraine described the situation, saying, “We were enjoying our day and sitting by a pool when it became very evident that a man was recording on his phone camera.”

The man, appearing to be in his late 30s or early 40s, was dressed in black Speedos and unaccompanied.

Despite the lifeguards’ attempts to intervene, the man persisted.

Lorraine’s husband decided to confront the man directly and demanded that he stop filming.

Finally, the man complied, marking the first time he ceased his recording. Lorraine and other parents present were deeply upset and angered by the incident.

A supervisor at the water park intervened, pulling the man out of the water and reprimanding him.
