Scene of the crash

A pedestrian who was seen crossing the same stretch of road where an 85-year-old woman was hit and killed by a bin lorry is being urged to come forward by police.

The incident happened on Edinburgh's Morningside Road, near Jordan Lane, at about 11:45 on Sunday.

Police said a man who was seen standing on a nearby pavement outside Stefanos Chip Shop had left the area visibly upset.

He was wearing a light-coloured jumper.

Sgt Andrew Miller, of Police Scotland, said: "Our investigation into this tragic incident is ongoing and I am today urging anyone who was in the area around the time of this collision to come forward.

"In particular, I'm keen to speak with a man who was standing on a nearby pavement and wearing a light-coloured jumper. He was visibly upset and may have witnessed the tragic events as they unfolded.

"Similarly, I want to hear from a pedestrian who was crossing the same stretch of road shortly before the collision."
