Police investigating a bag snatch in Edinburgh last year have released a CCTV image of a man they want to trace.

An 87-year-old woman was robbed after getting off a Number 19 Lothian bus near Crewe Road North at 18:10 on Saturday 29 December.

The woman was left shaken but unharmed.

The Police Scotland spokesman said: "Anyone who recognises the man, perhaps from his clothing, is asked to come forward immediately."
