A UK politician blocked a law on upskirting. Upskirting is when someone secretly takes a photo under someone's skirt. Politicians want it to be a crime, with a prison sentence. The UK's Prime Minister was "disappointed" that a member of her party blocked it. She wants upskirting to be a crime, "with government support".

Upskirting is a problem because of mobile phones. Men take photos up women's skirts and upload them online. The woman who started the campaign for the upskirting law said the politician blocked it because it "wasn't debated". She said he "wasn't really sure" what upskirting was. A politician said this was "disgusting".
