Police are appealing for information to trace three imitation firearms that were stolen during a break-in at an Army cadet hall in Fife.

The theft happened between noon on Wednesday 2 May and 11:00 on Wednesday 9 May at the property in Victoria Street, Newport-on Tay.

A quantity of cash was also stolen.

Police said the equipment does not function as a firearm and is used for training purposes. It is designed to look like an SA80 rifle.

Entry was forced at the back of the building.
