Detectives are hunting a mugger who may have tailed an 89-year-old man from a bank to his care home before trying to rob him in a daylight attack.

The pensioner had caught a bus from his care home in Chalmers Crescent in the Grange to visit the Santander branch in Newington Road.

Officers believe the suspect may have spotted the victim, who walks with the aid of a stick, at the bank and followed him onto a number five bus returning to the Grange from Salisbury Place.
