The footage, which lasts around six minutes, shows two male suspects entering the Dunearn Drive branch of the TSB on Friday, January 29.

The men are seen parking two bicycles around the corner from the bank before entering the premises and engaging with staff and customers and then making off with a sum of money.

Both men then fled the scene on the bikes and were spotted a short time later on Cawdor Crescent.

Anyone who recognises the men or who remembers seeing them in the vicinity of the bank is asked to come forward immediately.

The first male is described as white, in his late 20s or early 30s with dark stubble on his face.

At the time of this incident, he was wearing a dark coloured baseball cap and dark coloured clothing.

The second man is described as white, 5ft 9in tall, around 30-years-old, of medium build and with stubble.

He wore a dark coloured baseball cap, dark blue/grey hooded top and dark coloured trainers. He also wore dark blue jogging bottoms with a distinctive white coloured motif running partially down one leg.

Subsequent inquiries have established the jogging bottoms are made by Polish manufacturer Mordex – a brand associated with bodybuilding.

It is believed at least one of the men is Eastern European.

Detective Inspector Colin Robson, of Fife Division Crime Management who is leading this investigation, said: “As a result of our enquiries we are now in a position to release this footage to the public and it’s my hope that this will help identify the suspects or even jog memories for people who were in the area.

“I can reassure the local community that we’re working tirelessly to track down these men and will exhaust all avenues of inquiry.

“While the answer to their identity remains unknown, it may lie in the local community and I would urge anyone who views this footage, which is being shared nationally, and who recognises them or their description to contact police immediately.”

Those with information can contact Police Scotland on 101 or alternatively, the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
