Bank Street: People should avoid area after 'police incident' causes closure of Edinburgh city centre street and bus diversions
It is understood that a street in Edinburgh’s Old Town has been closed due to a ‘police incident.’
Bank Street is closed in both directions, according to a report from Edinburgh Travel News at around 7.30am on Friday morning.
The nature of the incident has not yet been confirmed.
There will be no through traffic between George IV Bridge and the Mound as a result.
People have been asked to avoid the area if they can.
Lothian sent out an alert this morning which announced that, due to a road closure, buses are unable to service several streets in the Capital.
Lothians stated: “Due to a road closure buses are unable to serve part of Hanover Street, The Mound and George IV Bridge and are instead diverted via George Street, Princes Street, North Bridge, South Bridge and Chambers Street in both directions until further notice.”
Police Scotland has been contacted for comment.
