CCTV images of a car have been released by police investigating the murder of T2 Trainspotting actor Bradley Welsh outside his Edinburgh home.

The former boxer sustained fatal injuries when he was shot in Chester Street at about 20:00 on Wednesday 17 April.

Detectives have issued photographs of a grey Ford Kuga SUV which was in the area at the time.

The vehicle was recovered by police but officers want to trace its movements.

The Ford is known to have been in nearby William Street about 30 minutes prior to the shooting, and was then driven through the town, arriving at Kaimes Avenue in Kirknewton at about 21:00 on the same evening.

The car was recovered by police on Saturday 20 April, at which time it had the registration number CX68 XVV.

Police said Mr Welsh had been returning home from his Holyrood Boxing gym when he was shot. His partner and young child were inside the building at the time.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

"We want to hear from anyone who saw the vehicle in and around Chester Street prior to the incident. This will help us identify any occupants and the route taken prior to arriving in Kirknewton.
