A man has been arrested after a pensioner was assaulted and robbed in his home in East Lothian.

The 83-year-old had answered the door of his home in Ladywell, Musselburgh, to a man offering to carry out work just after 13:00 on Sunday.

The thief then managed to enter the house where a struggle took place, which resulted in the victim being robbed of a three-figure sum of money.

A 42-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the robbery.

He is due to appear at Haddington Sheriff Court later.
