The Courier reports that both men were white and roughly 30 years old. They were wearing dark tracksuits, black baseball caps and black trainers. There has apparently been a strong response to the release of the images and the police have received numerous phone calls from the public.

Detective Inspector Colin Robson said: “We have released images of the two men who we are very keen to speak with as part of our ongoing investigation into this armed robbery.

“Both men were observed on bicycles on Alford Avenue. We are continuing to carry out various lines of inquiry in relation to this matter and I would like to thank everyone in the local community who has assisted with our investigation up to this point.”

Chief Inspector Stevie Hamilton added: “I urge anyone who can help identify the males shown in the images to come forward. What may seem like trivial piece of information could have a huge impact against the wider context of our investigation.”
