      When I was little, my grandfather got involved in amateur dramatics. He wasn't very good, but I mention it because the role that I best remember him playing was that of a judge in a play called "Breaking the Code", about the life and trial of Alan Turing. It was important to grandpa because he had always thought of Alan Turing as a national hero. He felt that his intelligence work at Bletchley had turned the tide of the war in the north Atlantic, where my grandfather was an officer on a destroyer. Grandpa felt that, despite his heroism, Alan Turing had been terribly ill used by the British establishment and the judiciary and that what happened to him ultimately brought about his destruction.

      Today, the Government has announced that they will be backing my Bill to make 'upskirting' a specific sexual offence.

      I've been working closely with the tenacious campaigner Gina Martin and her lawyer Ryan Whelan on the details of law reform with the Ministry of Justice - supported by hundreds of activists who have lobbied the relevant ministers for a change in the law on upskirting.
