Police arrested two men, aged 31 and 40, on suspicion of theft on Monday evening.

This poor fox, which appears to have been covered in a blue liquid, was spotted in the lobby of the Travelodge hotel in Woolwich. It was photographed by hotel guest Scott Farnell who described the incident as 'very distressing'. The hotel receptionist tried to contact the RSPCA before the fox was eventually ushered out using a trail of crisps.
Travelodge have apologised though it is unclear where the liquid came from.
