A bin lorry driver has died after being crushed by his own truck when he tried to stop it rolling out of a car park in South Queensferry.
The truck came to rest hanging over the edge of the pier.
The man, who has not been formally named, was taken to hospital but died from his injuries last night.
Police described it as a tragic accident and are appealing for any witnesses to come forward.
Although the area was busy at the time of the incident, around 1.15pm, no-one else was injured.
Sergeant Brian Smith, from Police Scotland's Edinburgh road policing unit, said: ''This tragic accident happened as the driver tried to stop his lorry from rolling out of the car park of the Hawes Inn.
''He was crushed against the wall by the lorry, which then hit a parked Jaguar car before rolling across the road and mounting the pavement. demolishing a bench and fencing before it came to rest hanging over the edge of the pier.
''Although this is a busy road, with a number of pedestrians in the area at the time, fortunately no-one else was injured.''
Following the incident, the road was closed between Hawes Brae and The Loan, resulting in local diversions.
