Couple Finds 'Creepy' Hidden Camera In AirBnB Rental

It's right out of a creepy spy movie.

Dougie Hamilton was staring at a digital clock in his Airbnb apartment when the plot of every spy movie ever made flashed before his eyes.

"In my head, I felt a bit weird even thinking about it, and I kept telling myself not to be daft. But there was something," Hamilton, from Glasgow in Scotland, told Daily Record.

"I took the charger out of it and saw there was a lithium battery in the back... I slid the front facing off the clock and could actually see there was a camera."

Hamilton and his girlfriend were renting an apartment in Toronto and had just returned from a day out in the city when he made the discovery.

Photos posted on Facebook appear to show an alarm clock with a mirrored face, and a camera lens underneath.

Hamilton said the clock faced the bedroom and living room and "could see everything".
