    Sikh man racially abused on bus
    An investigation has been launched after a Sikh man was racially abused by a gang on a bus in Edinburgh.

    The incident took place on a number 26 LRT bus travelling to Corstorphine, at about 2230 GMT on Saturday.

    The 22-year-old victim, who wears a turban, boarded the bus at Haymarket with a friend.

    Shortly after, a group of youths, who are all in their teens, racially abused the victim, partly due to his traditional clothing.

    They then got off the bus at various stops along Corstorphine Road and Drum Brae South.

    The main abuser, who is female, got off the bus at the top of the hill of Drum Brae Drive near to the Fox Covert housing estate.

    She is white, 16 to 20 years old, 5ft 8ins, of slim build, with blonde hair tied up in a ponytail. She was wearing a white jacket and grey jeans.


    A police spokesman said: "The victim was left extremely upset as a result of this incident, which shows a lack of respect for the victim's faith.

    "There is no place in society for religious or racial intolerance.

    "We want anyone who witnessed the incident, or who knows the identity of any of the youths involved, to get in touch."
