Police are appealing for witnesses following an armed robbery in East Kilbride.

Two knife-wielding thieves were captured on CCTV causing hundreds of pounds’ worth of damage at the Westwood Bar in the early hours of Sunday morning.

In a desperate attempt to find cash, the thieves eventually made off with several bottles of alcohol from one of the pub’s function rooms.

PC Laura Taylor from East Kilbride police, said: “We can confirm that between 3am and 8am on Sunday the Westwood Bar was broken in to.

“We would appeal for anyone who was in the area or lives nearby to contact us if they witnessed anyone acting suspiciously at the time.

“An alarm was activated and this may have woken householders nearby. Please call 101 with any information.”
