Designer handbags said to be worth at least £10,000 have been stolen from an Edinburgh city centre shop.

Handbag Heaven in Edinburgh's Howe Street was broken into between 17:15 on Saturday and 10:00 on Monday.

The items stolen include a cream, leather Hermes vintage classic 1954 handbag with gold clasp.

A Jimmy Choo perforated, tan, leather bag with double gold bangle, a monogrammed Louis Vuitton large hobo bag in brown suede were taken.

A Prada tan and python leather bag with a clip top and rope handles, sunglasses, jewellery and belts were also stolen.

Constable Gavin Howat, of Police Scotland, said: "All of the items taken from the store are extremely expensive and those responsible may attempt to sell them on at a discounted rate.

"As such, anyone who is offered any handbags matching the description of these is asked to contact police immediately.

"Similarly, anyone who remembers seeing anything suspicious in the Howe Street area over the weekend or early on Monday morning is also asked to come forward."
