Olympic medal recovered
26 October 2012
One of the Olympic Bronze medals taken while its owner was at a Mayfair club has been recovered.
Alex Partridge and Hannah Macleod, athletes at this year's Games, had left their jackets unattended whilst at Mahiki Nightclub, Dover Street W1 in the early hours of Wednesday 24 October.
"We are still looking to recover the second medal."
Some time later both parties realised their jackets, and the medals inside them, were gone.
On Thursday 25 October, Alex's jacket - not containing the medal - was handed into a northwest London police station.
And earlier today (Friday 26 October) police were alerted that Hannah's medal had been posted anonymously to the England Hockey Head Office in Buckinghamshire.
Her jacket has yet to be recovered.
The medal is being retained by police at this time as part of our inquiries, though we look forward to reuniting Hannah with her medal shortly. She has of course been kept fully informed.
Detective Chief Inspector James Harman Westminster CID said: "We are still looking to recover the second medal, and we stress that our inquiries remain active.
"Our appeals for information stand and I take this opportunity to reiterate them - if the public can help we ask them to do so.
"Alex's medal has yet to be traced, and he is understandably keen to be reunited with it as soon as possible."
Anyone with information should call Westminster CID on 020 7321 7650; if you wish to remain anonymous please contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
+ On 25 October a man [A - 31 ys] was arrested in connection with the investigation and later bailed to return to a west London police station on 23 November, pending further enquiries.
