Police are seeking two men in connection with the robbery

Business takings amounting to a five-figure sum of cash have been stolen from two people in a taxi in Glasgow.

The male and female colleagues had just entered a black cab on Clyde Street, at about 1045 GMT on Monday, when the robbery took place.

Two men entered the taxi, outside the Euro Hostel, and demanded the large black leather bag containing the cash.

They ran off with the bag towards Jamaica Street and were last seen in Howard Street.

The 20-year-old woman and her male colleague were uninjured.

One of the suspects was described as a white, male, in his 30s and about 5ft 8in with a slim build, thin face and clean shaven.

He was wore a black jacket, black tammy and dark framed glasses.

The other suspect was said to be about 5ft 6in and of stocky built and was wearing dark clothing.

Police have asked anyone with information to contact them.
