Detectives investigating an assault and robbery at an industrial estate in Dundee have released CCTV of two men they want to trace.

A 61-year-old man was attacked by two men as he was locking up the Wing Fung Cash and Carry in the Wester Gourdie Industrial Estate on 30 December.

More than £10,000 in cash was stolen in the raid, along with bank cards, cheque books and keys.

The men ran to Liff Place, where a vehicle was waiting to pick them up.

Officers are also looking at the possibility that the robbers may have been in the grounds of nearby Camperdown Park before the robbery and that a getaway vehicle was parked there.

The cash was in a black nylon briefcase bag - similar in style to a laptop bag - with a Red Cross-style symbol on it.

One of the men officers want to speak to is described as being between 20 and 30 years old, of slim build, about 5ft 10in height and wearing a dark grey hooded top with reflective markings on it.

'Vital information'

The second man is believed to be about the same age, height and build. He was wearing light clothing - possibly a matching hooded top and bottoms, police said.

Det Insp Kevin McMahon, the officer leading the inquiry, said: "We have pulled together a substantial amount of CCTV footage from a number of properties in the area and know from that footage that several cars were travelling in the Liff Road area at the time of the incident.

"We are still trying to trace the driver of an articulated lorry that was seen to park up on Liff Road, near to the junction with Whittle Place and the entrance to Camperdown Park, shortly before the incident took place.

"The lorry had a dark coloured cab with writing on it and a light coloured trailer. We would encourage the driver of that lorry to get in touch with us as he may have vital information for the inquiry team."

DI McMahon said the 61-year-old man was not injured in the robbery but had been left "extremely shaken".
