Police have renewed their appeal for information about the high-value theft from a jewellers in Dundee.

The jewellery was taken from Stephen Henderson Jewellers in the city's Union Street at about 15:55 on Friday.

Police have not revealed what was taken, or the value of the items.

But they have issued new descriptions of the two suspects and revealed that one of the men was wearing a distinctive navy blue deer stalker hat, lined with cream fur.

He was white, about 5ft 11in tall and had an athletic build, large blue eyes and mousey-coloured facial hair. He was thought to have had a Liverpudlian accent.

He was also wearing a grey and black striped top with long black sleeves, an Adidas hooded gilet with sky blue, grey and white panels on the front and back, which also displayed a white Adidas logo on the right breast, navy Armani jeans and sky blue trainers.

The second man was white, about 5ft 8in tall, of slim build with short, dark hair. He was wearing a black hooded long-sleeved top, light grey Adidas jogging bottoms with dark grey stripes, light-coloured trainers and a dark baseball cap.

'Busy with shoppers'

Shortly before the incident the men were seen walking up Union Street from the direction of Dundee railway station.

They were also seen running back towards the railway station after the incident, using the pedestrian crossing towards Discovery Point.

A police spokesman said "This was a high-value theft which occurred on a Friday afternoon when the city centre would have been busy with shoppers on their way home and people possibly leaving work early and heading to Dundee train station.

"From our extensive inquiries we have updated the descriptions of the men we wish to trace and we can confirm that one of the men was wearing a very distinctive fur-lined navy blue deer stalker hat and we believe he spoke with a Liverpudlian accent.

"We also know that the two men walked into the city centre from the direction of Dundee railway station and it is possible that the men were in the Discovery Point area for a short time prior to the incident.

"I would urge anyone who may have been in the Discovery Point and Union Street areas of Dundee at around this time and saw men fitting these descriptions to come forward to assist us with our inquiries."
