Gloucester and England rugby player Koree Britton has been cautioned after he was reportedly caught filming a woman on his mobile phone in changing rooms at Leisure@ in Cheltenham.

The 22-year-old hooker was arrested at the Leisure@ centre on March 31 this year.

A woman had seen her reflection in a mobile phone which appeared under the open bottom of her cubicle at unisex changing rooms at Leisure@ it was reported today.

A police spokesman said: "Police were called to reports of a male taking a photograph or video of a woman getting changed in a cubicle.

"A 22-year-old man from Gloucester has been cautioned for voyeurism."

Britton played for England at age-grade level and has made 30 appearances for Gloucester. He recently went out on dual registration to Cinderford RFC and played two games.

He remains unavailable for selection due to this. Last week Gloucester were forced to name a bench without a hooker due to injuries to Huia Edmonds, Darren Dawidiuk and Britton’s unavailability.

Gloucester Rugby said: “Gloucester Rugby is aware that one of its employees was cautioned by police following an incident last week, but that charges were not pressed and that the matter is now closed.

“The club has started an internal investigation into the matter and will not be making any further comment.”

Stephen Petherick, general manager at Leisure@cheltenham, said: "We take public safety very seriously and staff are vigilant in monitoring activities.

"We encourage customers to report anything suspicious and will act swiftly to confront anyone who breaches our security policies.

"We are pleased to work closely with the police to ensure that matters are investigated and resolved as quickly as possible.”
