Tayside Police are trying to trace two men behind an early morning robbery at a Montrose hotel.

Officers said the pair stole a quantity of cash from the safe after threatening the night porter at the Links Hotel in the Mid Links area of the town at about 04:45 on Monday morning.

The 26-year-old staff member was left shaken by the incident but unhurt.

Detectives are currently carrying out house to house enquiries and reviewing CCTV footage of the area.

The police have released the identities of the two men; one is about six feet tall and heavily built, with a large belly.

He was wearing a long-sleeved grey jumper and a balaclava.

The other was slim and wore a snood or scarf to cover his face, as well as a dark coloured hooded top with horizontal stripes, camouflage trousers and light coloured gloves.

Officers are keen to speak to anyone who saw individuals fitting the descriptions in the area, early on Monday morning.
