CCTV images have been released of a man police want to speak to in connection with an assault and robbery in East Lothian.

A shop assistant was assaulted and a four-figure sum was stolen during the incident in the Mini Market on New Row, Tranent, at about 20:15 on 18 August.

Police officers urged anyone who recognised the man to come forward.

The man was white, in his 40s, about 6ft 2in, of medium build with short brown hair and dark stubble.

At the time of the incident, he was wearing a dark blue jacket, dark grey jeans, light brown boots, black gloves, dark scarf and a black trapper style cap.

Det Con John Fortune, of Police Scotland, said: "Although the shopkeeper did not require medical treatment, this was a very distressing incident for the members of staff involved.

"Consequently we would urge anyone who recognises the male, his description, or may have seen him in the area to come forward."
