Police are investigating a robbery at an elderly man's home in Carnoustie.

It happened on Thursday night, when two men claiming to be police officers forced their way into the 77-year-old's home on Primrose Street.

They then demanded money before making off with a bottle of whisky and a mobile phone.

The victim was not physically injured but left extremely upset.

The two culprits are described as white, aged in their mid-30s, around 5ft 11in with short, dark, cropped hair.  

One of them was of stocky build and the other was of medium build. Both men were wearing green zipped jackets with a logo on them.

Detective Sergeant Graeme Wishart at Dundee CID said: "This was a very frightening experience for anyone to endure and it is vital that we trace the two despicable men who carried out this robbery

"I'd like to speak to anyone who may have either seen the culprits hanging around the area before or after the robbery occurred or anyone who recognises their descriptions."
