Spot the Irrelevant Detail

Toast just forwarded this BBC article to me with the note: “See if you can spot the irrelevant detail in this story.”

A student who secretly filmed women in the shared bathroom at his university halls of residence in Bangor, Gwynedd, has been given a suspended sentence.

Judge Merfyn Hughes told Charles Greaves, 19, of Wellington, Shropshire, he had harmed the three victims and brought great shame on his family.

Greaves had admitted six voyeurism charges after he hid a digital camera inside an adapted shower gel bottle.

…The shower gel bottle had been specially adapted it to hold the camera, and pierced to create a hole for the lens, the court was told.

But the former student, who was described as an "overweight loner", had failed to get good quality images and had put a sign on the bathroom door asking all students to take baths instead.

The court heard police were called after the camera was spotted by a female student when she was running a bath.

They arrested Greaves and recovered his laptop with images of three women.
In case you missed it, the BBC helpfully labeled (in bold) one section of the story ‘Overweight loner.’
