A FORMER boss at Glasgow's biggest social landlord made hundreds of secret recordings of colleagues while at work and on business trips.

Mark Logan, who was the finance director at the Wheatley Group, planted hidden cameras in a toilet at the firm's Glasgow headquarters and made almost 700 videos over 12 months.

The 48-year-old, of Tweedsmuir Crescent in Bearsden, also sexually assaulted someone while they were asleep and has now been placed on the sex offenders register. 

He pleaded guilty to charges of voyeurism and sexual assault when he appeared at Glasgow Sheriff Court yesterday.

Logan, joined by four family members, listened from the dock as details of his exploits were heard before Sheriff Platt.

The Procurator Fiscal depute told how several female colleagues said they were "uncomfortable" using the specific toilet at the firm's head offices on Glasgow's Cochrane Street and mentioned the presence of "strange devices" to their bosses.

On investigation in May 2016, Wheatley bosses uncovered three digital clocks which were found to have batteries, a micro SD card and recording equipment inside them.

The Fiscal depute told the court: "The clocks were removed and they were locked in a cupboard.

"[Logan] was frantically searching cupboards near the toilet and asked for the whereabouts of the clocks."

When confronted, the court heard that Logan said: "It's me. I am ashamed.

"I've been bottling it up for 20 years and I don't want to be gay.

"At best I'm bisexual."

Investigators found 685 videos recovered from five devices, including hard drives and "battery operated clocks with a covert camera which filmed through the mirrored face."

Of these videos, 341 were found to have been filmed in the office toilet and three people were filmed using the facility.

The court heard that Logan "can be seen in the films pointing a remote control at the device."

Between May 2015 and 2016, along with filming in his workplace, Logan also made secret recordings while on business trips in London and at Edinburgh's George Hotel.

On one occasion he could be seen in the footage placing a device on the bedside table of one of his victims.

In one video, one of the subjects he filmed was seen wearing a suit and tie.

The court was told four videos were recovered of Logan performing a sexual act with "a similar tie".

The Fiscal depute said there were a "number of captions" on the videos of a sexually explicit nature.

Logan also pleaded guilty to sexual assaulting someone by rubbing them in a sexual manner while they were asleep, without their consent, in 2014.

His solicitor Neil Kilcoyne said he had "nothing to add" at this time, and would retain his position until Logan was sentenced.

He added that a psychological report was available in draft and it would be submitted before the sentencing next month.

Sheriff Platt said he would defer sentencing to await criminal justice and social work reports.
