A man is being treated in hospital for a serious head injury following a fight outside an Edinburgh bar.

The incident happened outside the Ritz bar and Grill, on Lochside Place, at 01:00 on Sunday as the bar was closing.

The 23-year-old man was seriously assaulted and taken to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary.

Police are appealing for anyone who was in the bar at the time to contact police. They are particularly keen to speak to three people involved.

The first man was white, in his early 20s, 5ft 9ins tall, of slightly chubby build, with medium length blond or brown hair in a quiff. He was wearing tan chinos.

The second attacker was a white woman in her early 20s. She was about 5ft 4ins tall and was wearing a pink dress.

The third man was white, in his early 20s, 5ft 7ins tall, with shaved hair at the sides. He was wearing a red and white top.

Det Con Joyce Gunderson, of Police Scotland, said: "We know that the suspects were within the Ritz bar prior to the serious assault and we are appealing for anyone who was in the bar, or who witnessed this assault, to contact police."
