Two arrested at airport following New Year's Day nightclub theft

TWO people have been arrested as they attempted to board a flight following the alleged theft of a five-figure sum of money from the Brunel Rooms nightclub on New Year’s Day.

A 30-year-old man, believed to be Nathan Hatter, the club’s general manager at the time, and a 23-year-old woman were arrested by police at Gatwick Airport at 9.30am on New Year’s Day.

The Adver understands the quantity missing is in the region of £25,000, though this has not been confirmed.

Brunel Rooms has confirmed it is open for business as usual, without Nathan, who departed the business for undisclosed reasons on January 1.

A Wiltshire Police spokesman said: “Wiltshire Police were contacted following allegations of the theft of an amount of money from the Brunel Rooms club in Swindon.

"Further to police enquiries, a 30-year-old male from Swindon was arrested on suspicion of theft at Gatwick Airport on Wednesday, January 1, 2014. A 23-year-old woman, also from Swindon, was also arrested at the airport on suspicion of theft.

"Both have been released on police bail pending further enquiries."
