Edinburgh street locked down amid disturbance near nightclub

By Kirsten McStay

Police locked down a street in Edinburgh city centre amid a disturbance outside a nightclub.

Police were called to Lothian Road in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Multiple emergency service vehicles were pictured behind the cordon.

Early reports suggest the incident happened outside Bourbon nightclub, on Frederick Street.

On social media, one onlooker shared images, tweeting: "Heavy Police presence in the centre of Edinburgh tonight. Frederick Street, Castle Street and Rose Street shut between them, with car stopped on a closed Lothian Road."

Some shops will stay closed today, with a passerby told our sister paper Edinburgh Live: "Frederick street shut off lots of police. Shut off Rose Street from Frederick to Castle and George to Rose Street.

"There are at least five police cars on scene parked up."

Another person added: "Frederick Street Edinburgh closed. Can't get outside. Police investigating major incident. Both ends of street blocked."
