301 issue with the %20

I have the following .htaccess file

redirect 301 /design/meetings/ http://www.venueteam.co.uk/venue-team-conferences.html
redirect 301 /design/contactus/ http://www.venueteam.co.uk/venue-team-contact-us.html
redirect 301 /design/accom/index.htm http://www.venueteam.co.uk/venue-team-accommodation.html
redirect 301 /design/top%20ten%20hotels/midlands/belfry/ http://www.venueteam.co.uk/venue-team-venues/midlands/de-vere-belfry-sutton-coldfield.html

ErrorDocument 404 /404.php

for some reason all the redirects work apart from the one with the %20 for the spaces..

can anyone help.

if you put the string in quotes , you don't need %20 .. like this:

redirect 301 "/design/top ten hotels/midlands/belfry/" http://www.venueteam.co.uk/venue-team-venues/midlands/de-vere-belfry-sutton-coldfield.html
