Man charged after bank cards, keys and car stolen from Nottingham hotel

A man has been charged after a hotel room was raided and a car stolen.

Police were called after a couple returned to their room and found their bank cards and car keys missing.

They had booked into at a hotel in Nottingham city centre on Saturday, 28 May.

The following morning, they realised someone had been through their belongings and taken the car keys and bank cards, which were then used at a number of shops.

The couple then discovered their red Peugeot 3008, which they’d parked in a car park in Upper Parliament Street, had been stolen.
