The death of a man whose body was found in the car park of Edinburgh Royal Infirmary is being treated as a murder, police have confirmed.

Officers will be returning to the hospital between 21:00 and 23:00, exactly a week on from the last known sighting of the 43-year-old.

The Polish man was captured on CCTV getting off a 33 bus with four men near A&E at 22:00 on Friday 5 April.

The man was found dead with significant injuries on Sunday at 14:45.

It is believed the victim, who has not been named, could have lain in the bushes in the hospital car park for almost two days.

Det Ch Insp David McLaren, of Police Scotland, said: "We hope by returning to the hospital tonight we might catch people working shifts as they head to and from work who might be able to provide information about the group of men after they got off the bus.

"We have had a lot of support from the public so far, and we are grateful to everyone who has come forward with information already, but we would ask anyone who might not have spoken to police yet to get in touch on 101 as a matter of urgency."
