A woman has been raped following a night out at a club in Glasgow.

The 26-year-old victim was attacked in Glasgow's Dennistoun area in the early hours of Sunday after a night out in the city's west end.

Police Scotland said she has been left "extremely distressed'' by what happened, as officers work to trace two men in connection with the attack.

The woman was at the Sanctuary Nightclub on Dumbarton Road when she became separated from her friends at around 2.15am.

As she left the venue, she was approached by a man, believed to be in his late 30s, who engaged her in conversation.

He, the victim and another man then got into a car, which may have been a private hire taxi.

When the woman got out of the taxi, one of the men followed her and later subjected her to the serious sexual assault.

Detectives from Greater Glasgow's rape investigation unit are appealing for the taxi driver and both men to contact them.

The men are described as being white, around 6ft tall, bald and with heavy builds.

The first man was wearing jeans and a t-shirt. The second man, in his late 30s, was wearing a shirt.

Police said the men and the woman were picked up outside the nightclub at around 2.30am and were dropped off in the Firpark Street area. The taxi may then have gone on to another destination. Firpark Street is the area where flats have been built at the rear of the Necropolis and the Royal Infirmary.

Detective Inspector Liz McLean said: "This young woman thought these men were going to help her when in reality they were intent on causing her harm.

"She is extremely distressed by what has happened and it's vital we trace both men. In particular, we would like to speak to the taxi driver who collected the group as it's possible he can provide us with further detail which will enable us in tracing both these men.''
