Detectives are asking for your help to identify the men in these e-fit images, after a 71-year-old woman was threatened at knifepoint in the Manor area of the city.

The woman was walking her dog, a black Lhasa Apso, through fields just off Harborough Avenue, heading towards Corker Bottoms Lane, at around 8.15am on Friday 22 June when she reports being approached by two men, one of who was carrying a knife.
