Police have released images of a man they want to trace in connection with an armed robbery at a Royal Bank of Scotland branch in South Lanarkshire.

The suspect escaped with a four-figure sum of cash after threatening female staff with a knife at the Lesmahagow branch on Abbeygreen on 9 January.

The man in the images is described as white, between 5ft 10in and 6ft tall, in his early 20s and of slim build.

He wore a grey cotton tracksuit with a black scarf covering his lower face.

He was also carrying a black backpack.

Anyone who recognises the man in the image is asked to contact police.
