Police investigating the death of a pensioner hit by a bin lorry are appealing for witnesses.

The 85-year-old woman died after a collision with a private refuse vehicle in Edinburgh's Morningside area on Sunday.

Officers want to trace a man who was seen standing on a nearby pavement outside Stefano's chip shop and left "visibly upset'' following the incident on Morningside Road, near to Jordan Lane, at about 11.45am.

Sergeant Andrew Miller said: "Our investigation into this tragic incident is ongoing and I am today urging anyone who was in the area around the time of this collision to come forward.

"In particular, I'm keen to speak with a man who was standing on a nearby pavement and wearing a light-coloured jumper. He was visibly upset and may have witnessed the tragic events as they unfolded.

"Similarly, I want to hear from a pedestrian who was crossing the same stretch of road shortly before the collision.''

Those with information can contact Police Scotland on 101.
