Police have released a CCTV image of two men sought in connection with a spate of burglaries at a Gatwick hotel.

Between 5.02pm and 7.38pm on 25 July, a total of 53 rooms were entered at Marriot's Courtyard London hotel, in the South Terminal, using a lost or stolen housekeeping master key.

Of these, four had property stolen from them, ranging from cash, foreign currency, perfume and valuable jewellery.

CCTV footage shows two men enter the hotel through the main doors and make their way upstairs; however enquiries have established the men were neither guests nor staff at the hotel.

They then leave the premises after about two hours and 45 minutes, during which time each of the 53 rooms were entered. None of the rooms were entered prior to their arrival or after their departure.

The first suspect is described as white, of medium build, with short dark hair which is shaved at the sides. He was wearing a pink polo shirt, dark coloured shorts and flip flops, and had tattoos visible on his left wrist and his right calf.

The second suspect is described as white, of slim build, with short brown or grey hair. He was wearing a navy T-shirt, beige shorts, white trainers and white socks.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact or call 101, quoting serial 732 of 26/07.
