Love rat trapped

In 2003, Masarrat Ali Butt caught out her love cheat husband of 36 years, Shaukat - she took a photo of him leaving his "other wife's" house. Shaukat, a Justice of the Peace from Glasgow, had been leading a double life with his mistress and their daughter. When Masarrat found out he confessed and said it was all over. Her photo proved it wasn't and she filed for divorce.

Video nasty

This year, a woman set up a video in her home to catch her boyfriend, whom she suspected of abusing her one-year-old baby. Despite video evidence of Jamie Thompson hurling the child around like a rag doll, he walked free from court.

Sex pest exposed

Housing officer Ken Thornton told a female tenant she wouldn't be evicted if she had sex with him. He was caught red-handed when his victim Jean Dades secretly videoed him pestering her - she hid a camcorder in her child's toy box then sent the video to his bosses. Thornton was demoted and given a written warning by council chiefs in Hull.

Stalker snapped

In 1999, stalker Michael Czarnota was jailed for three months - the first person to be convicted with video evidence. He was caught out by a tiny camera (smaller than a cigar) at a window in the home of his victim, neighbour Carol Taylor.
