Part of an Edinburgh street outside a pharmacy has been closed after a man was stabbed by at least one other man.

The incident happened outside the Mackinnon pharmacy on Calder Road, next to Scotmid, near the Sighthill roundabout at about 09:15.

Police Scotland have taped off the area next to an underpass and said inquiries were ongoing.

A Police Scotland spokesman said: "A 38-year-old man sustained a puncture wound to his chest."

He added: "He was taken to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh where he continues to be treated.

"His injury is not believed to be life threatening."
