'They eventually left the room but outside they realised they left behind coats and a handbag with a purse in it containing taxi money to get home.'

'One girl knocked on the door saying she wanted to retrieve her stuff and was let back in. It’s then she says she was raped. Police were called to the hotel shortly afterwards to a report of rape.'

A second man has been charged with the alleged sexual assault. 

West Midlands Police confirmed the charge.
