Detective Inspector Gavin McKinlay said: “Our enquiries are continuing into the robbery and we are still looking to trace two men and the outstanding black Vauxhall Corsa registration mark SG13 ZLZ.

“The Corsa was seen at the roundabout at the junction of the A92 and Balgillo Road East in Dundee shortly after the robbery.

“We are expanding our door to door enquiries and officers are still continuing to review CCTV.

“We are also aware of social media posts being circulated by the public yesterday naming individuals who they believe responsible for the robbery, we would ask that people DO NOT speculate on names or the incident itself. This is not helpful to the investigation.

“I would like to take the time to thank members of the public who have come forward so far and assisted with the investigation.”

If you have any relevant information that would think would be helpful to detectives, please get in touch with Police Scotland on 101, quoting CR/27950/18.
