Police are hunting thieves who made off with a "large amount of money" from a south of Scotland hotel.

The till was taken from the premises and police are trying to trace two men seen in the area around that time.

One of them was aged between 20 and 30, slim and 5ft 10in tall and wearing a white cap, black sunglasses, a charcoal-coloured jacket, dark trousers and dark trainers.

The second man was about the same age, slim but broader than the first man, 6ft tall and was wearing a black hooded jacket, black trousers and white trainers.
