Police in Edinburgh have released CCTV footage of two men they wish to trace as part of an investigation into an assault.

A 21-year-old man was walking along Elm Row at about 00:30 on 27 November and had just passed the Jeremiah's Tap pub when he was hit in the face.

He sustained injuries to his mouth and was helped by various members of the public following the attack.

Both of the men are white and in their early 20s.

One was wearing grey Adidas cotton bottoms, a black hooded jacket with a white emblem on the left breast and hood and black trainers.

The other was wearing a dark hooded top and dark trainers with a white rim around the bottom.

Det Con Iain Wallace, of Police Scotland, said: "The victim sustained painful injuries to his mouth and our inquiries have been continuing to trace those responsible.

"As part of this investigation we are eager to trace the men within this CCTV footage and anyone who recognises them should contact police immediately."
