Police are appealing for witnesses after a 62-year-old woman was robbed by two people at her home in Fife.

The incident happened at about 08:45 on Tuesday in Alexander Street, Kirkcaldy. Jewellery and a money box containing a four-figure sum of cash was stolen.

One of the attackers was male, aged about 40, 5ft 10in tall and of skinny build. He had a local accent and was wearing a blue hooded top.

The second attacker spoke with a "squeaky" voice.

The second suspect was also shorter, skinny and was wearing a cream baseball cap.
