Police are appealing for information after a 22-year-old man was attacked by a gang outside Arbroath Abbey.

The man was approached and assaulted by five or six men near the abbey's visitor centre at about 15:45 on Thursday.

Officers said the man was not badly hurt, but sustained cuts and bruises to his face.

The victim managed to escape after a woman walked through the abbey archway and interrupted the incident.

No descriptions of the suspects have been issued, but Police Scotland said it was following a "positive line of inquiry."
