Witness appeal after man falls from van in Edinburgh

Police in Edinburgh are appealing for witnesses after a 24-year-old man fell from a moving vehicle, which then sped away from the scene.

The incident, which was believed to involve a Ford transit van, occurred in Raeburn Place at 17:25 on Friday.

Police said the vehicle was seen being driven erratically through the Stockbridge area after the incident.

The man who fell from the van was taken to hospital but did not suffer any serious injuries.

Two men are understood to have been in the van at the time of the incident. The driver was wearing a white T-shirt.

Det Sgt Bob Williamson said: "Our officers are working hard and making extensive inquiries to establish the full circumstances of what happened.

"The events described and the irresponsible actions of the van driver are obviously concerning and we would urge members of the public who may be able to identify the vehicle or its occupants to come forward immediately."
