Vigil For Mikaeel In Muirhouse
A candlelit vigil has been held in memory of Mikaeel Kular, the three-year-old boy whose disappearance sparked a huge hunt a year ago.
Hundreds of people in Edinburgh joined the search for Mikaeel, whose body was later found in woodland in Fife.
His mother, Rosdeep Adekoya, was jailed for 11 years in August after pleading guilty to culpable homicide.
Tonight residents in the Muirhouse community where Mikaeel lived lit candles and held a minute's silence for the youngster.
Those affected by the tragedy were invited to Linear Park for the vigil at 6pm.
Robert Pearson, chairman of Tenants and Residents in Muirhouse (Trim), said more than 100 people attended.
He said: "As much as it was a sombre event, it was also positive that so many people turned out on such a bitter night.
"People came not just from Muirhouse but from all over Edinburgh.
"It's important that those affected get closure and this has gone a long way to help achieve that.''
Ms Adekoya, 34, reported her son missing from the family's former home in Ferry Gait Crescent last January.
A court later heard Mikaeel had been beaten and his body had been put in a suitcase and hidden 25 miles away in Kirkcaldy.
