Wedding guests staying at a Grangemouth hotel had cash and goods stolen while they celebrated with friends and relatives.

The 16 English visitors, who had travelled to the area on Saturday for the nuptials at the Beancross, lost £160 pounds, cigarettes, and £100 hair straightners.

Callous thieves even took money from a wedding card intended for the newlyweds and the bride’s Chanel perfume - a gift from her husband-to-be, Colin.

Grangemouth’s Janice West, the mother-of-the-groom, said: “They had travelled such a long way, and this was their first time in Scotland and this is what happens.”

A spokesman for Travelodge said: “This is an isolated incident. The manager is currently conducting a full investigation.

“However, he refunded all the money to the guests and the price of their rooms, and they were happy with this.”

Police Scotland confirmed they attended after a large party of hotel guests had various items stolen from their rooms.
