But police have in the recent past issued warnings about dodgy coat hooks installed to spy on punters.

If you see one, you should leave immediately and report it to the police.

The hooks are freely available to buy online for as little as £12 on auction sites.

They look like regular coat hooks, but contain a hidden spy camera.
