Police have re-appealed for information exactly a week after a bookmakers in Aberdeen was robbed at gunpoint.

The William Hill shop on Moir Crescent, Northfield, was targeted at about 1020 BST on Thursday, 31 March.

Grampian Police said a weapon was used. Neither the force nor William Hill would say what type it was, but BBC Scotland understands it was a firearm.

Police were back at the scene on Thursday morning, as the hunt for the two suspects continued.

The men - described as being in their late teens to early 20s and wearing dark clothing - escaped with a three-figure sum of money.
