A police investigation is under way to track down a life-saving defibrillator which has disappeared in Edinburgh.
The heart-starting equipment was discovered missing from its case in Constitution Street, Leith, earlier this week.
Officers are investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident.
Sergeant Kirsty McArthur-Kerr said: “There are several defibrillators at key locations around Edinburgh which have been funded by charities or donated for public use.
“These are a vital life-saving resource and the loss of this one could have potentially fatal consequences.
“At the moment, we are not sure of the circumstances surrounding the defibrillator being removed from its casing, so we are appealing to the public to contact us if they have any information which may help us trace it.”
