Two motorists who may have witnessed a man being knocked down and killed on an Edinburgh road are being urged to come forward.

John Carrigan, 54, from Edinburgh, suffered head injuries after being struck by a Toyota MR2 on Corstorphine High Street at 18:20 on 7 February.

He was taken to the Western General Hospital but later died.

The first witness was in a silver or grey Rover 75 car, travelling west on Corstorphine High Street.

It had stopped behind queuing traffic at St Margaret's Park before possibly turning into the Tesco store.

The second witness was in a red Mini with a white roof and white mirrors, which was also travelling east along the High Street.

The car is believed to have been stationary in traffic, close to the area where the collision happened.

A Lothian and Borders Police spokesman said: "Officers are still investigating the full circumstances of this incident and the assistance of those who were on the road at the time is vital.

"The drivers of these cars may have valuable information that can assist with our enquiries and they are urged to contact police immediately."
