POLICE are hunting two grinning thieves who strode on to a hotel patio and stole a table and chairs.

One of the men calmly stacked four wicker chairs while his friend picked up a table from the front of the Queens Hotel in Paignton.

But both men appeared to be unaware their actions were being recorded by CCTV (pictured).

Police have now released an image of a man carrying patio furniture away from the scene.

Hotel manager Lee Cullen said: "We think it was two chaps who came along and just casually walked on to the front of the patio.

"One picked up a table and the other stacked chairs.

"The table is a big round wicker one and the chairs are wicker too. They are quite expensive.

"We've never had a problem with people stealing before. The patio is easily accessible from the road."

The incident happened between 3.20am and 3.30am on September 16.
