Robbers raid five star hotel again

One of the most prestigious five star hotels in the UK has been hit by smash and grab robbers for the second time in four weeks.

A gang of six men on three mopeds pulled up outside the Dorchester Hotel in Mayfair, central London, in the early hours of this morning and three of them smashed their way through the front door and broke into display cabinets.

The luxury venue was hit in exactly the same way on June 10, when watches and jewellery were stolen in what police called a "well-planned" heist.

In today's robbery the thieves all fled the scene within minutes and no one has yet been arrested.

Detective Sergeant Mark Staples said: "We continue work towards establishing those responsible for carrying out not only the robbery which took place in the early hours of this morning but the robbery which took place last month.

"We have yet to make arrests in relation to either incident and we urgently require the support of the public with providing us with any information no matter how small. There may be people who know who is responsible and I am keen for those with any information to come forward and assist us with our investigation."
