Five Hurt In Crash On Edinburgh Bypass

A crash between a bin lorry, bus and two cars has left five people injured.

The four-vehicle accident happened on the Edinburgh bypass between Baberton and Dreghorn on Monday evening.

Police said a woman on board the bus suffered a "serious leg injury'' in the crash.

She is being treated at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary and her injury is not thought to be life-threatening.

Four other people who suffered minor injuries were also taken to hospital and have since been released.
