A former glamour model, Tracy Dixon aged 54, has won a £200,000 legal battle with the police after a policeman filmed her and her kids sunbathing naked using a helicopter camera, according to reports.
Tracy Dixon sued the South Yorkshire Police department after claiming police caused her distress as they have not revealed how often she was spied on by the said policeman(pictured below).
According to her, the policeman who committed the crime, Adrian Pogmore, 53, would hover over her home at least three times a week and film her and her daughters, the youngest of whom was eight at the time.
Tracy, who is a mum-of-three took legal action after Pogmore was jailed for a year in 2017 after admitting to four counts of misconduct in public office, using the South Yorkshire Police helicopter for “sexual spying”.
The police force has now reached a settlement with Tracy, The Mirror reports.
On a video, taken in 2007, the police helicopter had circled Tracy’s home as she lay naked on a sun lounger.
A statement from South Yorkshire Police said: “All parties are bound under the confidentiality schedule relating to these proceedings.
“All criminal, civil and misconduct proceedings have concluded.”
Tracy previously said of Pogmore: “He is a taxpayer-funded pervert.
“While he was flying around for his own, sexual kicks criminals were on the run.”
In October 2014, South Yorkshire police told Tracy they had discovered footage taken by Pogmore of her sunbathing naked in the secluded garden of her remote home.
Pogmore, an Air Observer, worked as part of South Yorkshire Police’s helicopter crew.
He also filmed another naked couple and also used the £2million chopper to film his “swinging” pals romping on their patio for eight minutes.
Two other police officers and two pilots who were in the helicopter were cleared of misconduct, according to the Mirror UK.
When Tracy was told the identity of the officer she was horrified to realise they had gone to school together in nearby Rotherham.
She also found out he filmed in her garden for up to five years after the policeman, tracked her down.
Tracy has previously said she believes there are more tapes of her naked even though she was only shown one.
