Any advice welcome.
Nice, friendly regular WG was busted at a Travelodge hotel in Greater London.
Sitting in room alone. Knock on door. Security enters and grabs her handbag to look for condoms. They tell her to get out, pay £150 or they will call the police.
She loses her stuff in the room, pays them and ends terrified on the street.
Is this actually legal? Looks like extortion to me.
If true, I think the wg should contact the press, and let the press contact the hotel or even there head office, now I would assume the wg can prove she had stayed there overnight, and the hotel will have recorded her checking out
This would be bad publicity for the hotel chain...Newspaper headline: security force entry and search handbag, once the item appears in the paper, I think the police would take an interest in this story
I wonder what outcome the wg would get if she contacts the head office, but to do this she would have to admit, she was using this room to see clients, which would be against the hotels rules, but in saying this security entering her room and searching her bag, isn't going to go down well, and I could see the hotel offering compensation, for her not to tell her story
I don't think she has anything to lose by even going to the police, just be honest with them, tell them you were using the room for incalls, and security have robbed you; I think if anything hotel security are the ones who would be in trouble with the law
