Police have issued a photo of a man they would like to speak to after a woman was allegedly raped in a hotel bedroom in Brighton.

The 26-year-old victim, from London, travelled to the city with friends on Sunday July 7 and stayed at Legends Hotel that night.

When she returned home she contacted the Metropolitan Police to say she had been raped in her hotel bedroom in the early hours of Monday July 8.

Police have now released an image of a man who they believe is from North London who could have information about what happened at the hotel.

Det Const Paul Candy said: “We believe the man is from north London but we are keen to speak to anyone who recognises him or who knows where he could be.

“If you know him please ask him to contact us.

“If you have seen him and know who he is please get in touch with us so we can speak to him about what happened.
