RAPE squad detectives are following new leads in the hunt for two sex attackers.

Thousands of people have viewed new CCTV footage on social media as police continue their investigation into a vicious sex attack in Glasgow.

Officers are now sifting through new information passed to them from members of the public.

Almost 14,000 hits were recorded after the team probing the rape posted footage on YouTube.

Police want to question two men spotted in the video after a 24-year-old woman was attacked in Dixon Avenue, Govanhill on Monday, May 19.

Officers believe the men may have vital information which could assist detectives in their inquiry.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: "Information from the public has been given following our appeal."

As the investigation enters its second week, officers have again appealed for anyone with information to contact them. Since Thursday, views of the CCTV footage have been steadily rising and detectives are hopeful they will uncover new leads.

The hunt was also stepped up when police held door-to-door inquiries in the area.

Officers questioned residents in their search for more clues and also handed out leaflets and posters showing images of both men. Extra police have been drafted in and high-visibility patrols stepped up in a bid to reassure local people.

The woman was seen in the company of two men. The first has a sallow complexion and very dark hair and was wearing a dark jumper, trousers and white trainers.

The second also has a sallow complexion and dark hair. He too was wearing dark clothing.

Detective Inspector Liz McLean said: "It's possible they have information which could prove vital."
