Two masked gunmen have stormed a hotel and tied up a member of staff before making off with cash and mobile phones.

Police were called to the Dean Street Townhouse in Dean Street, in Soho at just after 3am today after the two men, said to be speaking in eastern European accents and wearing white hoodies, burst in and demanded money.

They threatened staff at the Georgian four-storey hotel and tied one man up, taking some cash and mobile phones before fleeing the scene.

No shots were fired and no one was injured but one man was treated for shock.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information is asked to call Metropolitan Police officers in Westminster on 101.
