Upskirting in UK – level 1

04-02-2019 07:00

This news is about upskirting. Upskirting is when people take a picture up a skirt. Some people up skirt women. The women do not want this. They do not say, ‘yes, take my picture’.

Upskirting is illegal in Scotland. It is not illegal in England and in Wales. This can change. There is a new law. If it passes, upskirting becomes illegal in England and Wales, too.

Difficult words: illegal (something illegal is a crime), law (a document which says what people can or cannot do), pass (make a law and say when it starts).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
