PERVY peeping toms have been using hidden coat hook cams to spy on you in changing rooms and loos.

Coat hooks are on the back of the door in most public bathrooms, and don’t get a second look.

But police are warning people to have a closer look at the hooks, which are readily available to buy in Britain.

It has emerged these devices can be bought on Amazon for as little as £9.99.

They seem innocent enough at first glance, but if you take a second look they contain a tiny camera which films through a small hole at the top of the plastic.

The “hooks” have a tiny camera which captures sound and motion.

Some have motion detectors, so they only switch on when someone walks into the cubicle.

Then creeps can then retrieve their spy cam at the end of the day and download anything it has filmed to their computer.

Last year cops in Florida warned that perv spy clothing hooks were being attached to walls in women’s public toilets, including one at a beach.

At the time, the Florida Keys sheriff said: “Anyone who has a public restroom on their property needs to check them closely.

“If you find anything suspicious you think might contain a hidden camera, don’t touch it. Call us right away and we will respond.

“Keep in mind, though, that these are very small cameras that can be mounted in many locations and hidden in many seemingly every-day items.”
