Police have appealed for witnesses to help solve the mystery surrounding an electric scooter rider who was found seriously injured on a road.
The man was discovered by a member of the public in Edinburgh’s Ferniehill Road at around 12.15am on Wednesday.
Emergency services attended and the 40-year-old was taken to hospital with serious, but not life-threatening, injuries.
Constable James Lamb said: “First and foremost we are seeking to understand how the man became injured.
“He suffered a head injury and was found in the eastbound lane of Ferniehill Road, just off Gilmerton Road, near to the junction with Ferniehill Avenue.
“I would ask anyone in the Moredun and Gilmerton areas who may have seen a man riding an e-scooter late last night, or any properties who may have private CCTV covering the area, to check their systems to see if this can help our enquiries.
“Similarly any drivers in the area who may have seen the rider prior to him being found injured, and especially if recording with dashcam, should provide any relevant information or footage to officers as soon as possible.”
If you have any information, call 101.
