Police have released images of two men they want to track down following an assault in Edinburgh at New Year that left the victims “traumatised”.

Two men were attacked at the city’s Canongate at around 12.30am on Thursday, January 2.

Officers investigating the incident now want to question the men pictured.

Both men were described as having a tanned complexion. One of the men, who was wearing a baseball cap, spoke with an east London accent.

Detective constable Pete Shannon said: “Both victims were left traumatised from this incident.

“We are eager to trace the men pictured as we believe they may be able to assist our enquiries, and would urge anyone who may recognise them to get in touch with us as soon as possible.”
