A group of thieves were likely in good spirits after robbing a hotel of its alcohol.

In an apparent distraction technique, two people argued outside La Baia Hotel while the sneaky bandits broke into Blenheim Terrace establishment.

They looted the lodge of Malibu, Bacardi, Southern Comfort and Tia Maria before all four fled the scene.

Police are now appealing for witnesses of the boozy burglary, which took place on Tuesday 30 September at around 6am.

Anyone who can help officers with their enquiries is urged to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101 – select option 2 – and ask for PC Jake Rushworth or Scarborough police.
