Police are appealing for information after a man and woman were attacked in Dalmuir at the weekend.

A 48-year-old man and his 27-year-old daughter were punched in the face by a stranger as they were having a verbal argument outside a pub on Stewart Street.

The man was punched once in the face and suffered a minor injury to his nose, while his daughter was smacked twice in the face.
