Police have issued a new appeal for information about a jewellery theft in Edinburgh's New Town.

A man in his 20s walked into the Lime Blue jewellery store on George Street at about 13:10 on Thursday 27 September.

He asked to look at a number of rings before grabbing them and running off. The rings have been valued at £27,000.

Lothian and Borders Police have now published images of the stolen jewellery.

They said the suspect got into a green Vauxhall Omega, which sped off down Castle Street and towards Queen Street.

He was described as white, about 5ft 6ins tall with short, dark spiky hair and was wearing a dark blue jacket, jeans and white trainers.

A police spokesman said: "We now know the make and model of the getaway vehicle and we are keen to hear from anyone who can help us identify the driver.

"The store has provided us with images of the stolen rings and any businesses or individuals who are offered items matching their description should contact police immediately."
