A man spotted by CCTV in Hastings may be able to assist in an investigation into a suspected theft at a hotel in Kent.

A 61-year-old woman’s bank cards are believed to have been stolen from her room at a hotel in Clifton Gardens, Folkestone, between 7pm on January 27, and 9am the following day.

The victim was alerted after a phone call she received at the hotel from someone claiming to be from her bank and asking her questions about her cards.

When she went to her room to check them, she discovered they were missing and reported it to Kent Police.

Investigating officers discovered money had also been withdrawn from her account.
