Mr Adebanwo first thought he had found an air freshener before realising it was something more sinister and reported the shocking incident to police the same day.
The camera, originally disguised as a clothes hook, had been modified to look more inconspicuous while its USB slot and SD card remained hidden.

"Our stores' teams have been asked to remain vigilant whilst the investigation continues." Waterstones has been contacted for comment.
