Travelodge guest smeared faeces in hall and drove through reception

Nathan Anderson was jailed for three years for his ‘reckless’ rampage at a Cambridge Travelodge

A 33-year-old man who smashed his car through the entrance of a hotel after smearing poo inside the building has been jailed for three years.

Nathan Anderson started wreaking havoc shortly after checking into the Travelodge in Cambridge Leisure Park in September 2019.

He started by deliberately setting off the fire alarm, forcing all guests to evacuate.

He then smeared faeces across the floor of a corridor near his room and on a door.

Later the same evening, he got into his car and drove through the doors into the reception area, luckily avoiding any injuries to staff or guests.

Anderson, of East Street, Derby, fled the scene before emergency services arrived but was caught thanks to CCTV fotoage.

The defendant was found guilty of criminal damage and reckless endangerment to life at Huntingdon Law Courts this week.

The motives for his rampage remain a mystery.

PC Ryan Parker of Cambridgeshire Constabulary said: ‘Anderson behaved recklessly and dangerously that night and he’s lucky nobody was seriously hurt.

‘He caused extensive damage to the hotel and distress to the staff on duty and those who had to clear up his mess.

‘I am glad justice has been done and Anderson will be spending time behind bars for his actions.’
