‘Paedo’ pensioner allowed to live in Travelodge for months is finally turfed out

A man who is allegedly wanted by police in Poland for suspected sexual abuse of children was evicted from a Travelodge after living there for three months, reports have claimed.

The pensioner is also currently fighting extradition charges.

He was arrested in September 2021 by Bedfordshire Police on a European Arrest Warrant from Poland and was held in custody by Westminster magistrates while he fought extradition.

The man had appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court in London but was released on conditional bail and allowed to stay at a residential address in Bedford until April, when the court changed his bail to stay at the hotel.

But after the Sunday Express contacted the hotel chain about the man, he was removed.

According to the newspaper, he was given permission to stay in one of the hotel's four branches in the town after he was arrested last September.

The man is due back in court to face judgment in the extradition case, and it is now understood he's in self-contained accommodation.

And he isn't the only wanted man who had been calling the hotel company home – a man fighting extradition to Romania where he is wanted on embezzlement charges was also allowed to stay in a London Travelodge,

The man, in his 30s, was arrested last year and placed in the Travelodge in Docklands Central, after the court changed the place where he was due to stay from a different original address.

In a statement given to the Sunday Express, Travelodge confirmed neither men are currently living in their hotels.

A spokesperson said: "The safety and security of our customers and staff is of paramount importance to us.

"We can confirm that we do not have agreements in place to provide bail accommodation and that these two individuals are no longer staying in our hotels.

"We do work with a range of third parties and have stipulated to them that we do not accept bookings for individuals that are alleged to be a sex offender or paedophile."

Bedford Borough Council also confirmed to the paper that staff perform checks with police before placing anyone in temporary accommodation.

A council spokesperson said: "If someone has a criminal conviction they would be housed appropriately. We would not knowingly place a convicted sex offender in a hotel."
