They called the pub and the coat was put to one side for collection the following day.

However, by Sunday it was discovered that a bank card and a mobile pone had been taken from the coat and that the card had been fraudulently used during the very early hours of Sunday morning at locations in the city.

Sussex Police said: “These two women were seen during transactions at one of the shops, a nearby convenience store.

“If you recognise them, please contact the police online or by calling 101, quoting serial 792 of 17/11.”
