Police have released CCTV images of a man they want to trace in connection with a serious assault in Edinburgh.

A 19-year-old man was seriously injured in an unprovoked assault at the Silk Nightclub in Kings Stables Road on 29 December last year.

Police have been following a positive line of inquiry and want to trace a man seen in CCTV footage.

Anyone who recognises the man or anyone with information about the attack is urged to contact police.

Det Con Richard Creanor said: "This was a vicious unprovoked attack on an innocent member of the public trying to enjoy a night out with friends.

"The male in the CCTV footage is of interest to the inquiry and anyone who recognises him is asked to contact police immediately."
