GUN thugs invaded an elderly couple’s house and robbed them at gunpoint yesterday (Tuesday).

Police are appealing for information after the shocking crime in Stepps at around 9.30am.

Four men threatened the 66-year-old householder and his 65 year old wife in Whitehill Farm Road.

They made off with a five-figure sum of money, in a light-coloured people carrier, believed to be white or silver.

The couple were not injured, but have been left very shaken by the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call Cumbernauld CID on 01236 50390 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where details can be passed in confidence.
