A man's been glassed in the face at a pub in Edinburgh.

The 55 year old was about to buy a drink at the bar when the suspect, who was in front of him, turned around and pushed a glassed into his face.

He then made off from the pub with a group of men and the victim was taken to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary.

He is described as white, in his early 30s, slim build, around 5ft 8in to 5ft 9in tall, and with short dark hair that is balding at the back. He was wearing a dark, possibly leather, jacket, and dark jeans.

Detective Sergeant Clark Martin said: "This appears to have been a completely unprovoked attack which left the victim with a facial injury that is likely to result in permanent scarring.

"We are appealing for anyone who was in Platform 5 around 11pm yesterday evening, and we witnessed this assault, to contact Police Scotland on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
