A man has been taken to hospital after being struck by a bus in the centre of Edinburgh.
Emergency crews closed South Bridge for more than three hours after the 40-year-old was hit by the single-decker Lothian service shortly after 5.15pm on Tuesday evening.
He was transported to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh for further treatment while an initial investigation was opened.
His current condition is unknown.
The route between Chambers Street and the Royal Mile was closed, forcing traffic to be diverted away from the scene.
Lothian said they are now co-operating with investigators.
A Police Scotland spokesperson added: “We were made aware of a collision involving a bus and a pedestrian on South Bridge in Edinburgh shortly after 5.15pm on Tuesday, September 19.
“Emergency services attended and the pedestrian, a 40-year-old man, was taken to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.
“The road was reopened around 8.15pm and enquiries are ongoing.”
