Gloucestershire Police warning ahead of Cheltenham Races at Prestbury Park
Hoteliers and race-goers are being warned to keep their eyes on their bank cards as well as the finishing line during the Cheltenham Festival.
During last year's race week several hotels in the Cotswolds fell victim to a group of individuals who stole bank cards and cash from hotel rooms.
The stolen cards were used to pay for accommodation and attempts were made to withdraw cash from banks.
Investigations into the thefts are still ongoing and Gloucestershire Police have released CCTV images of those they want to speak to in relation to the thefts.
