Lochend roundabout: Police car crashes through garden wall ‘during pursuit’
A police car has crashed through the garden wall of a home during a high-speed chase in Marionville, Edinburgh.
Officers were initially pursuing a car after the driver failed to stop on London Road at around 3:45pm.
But the chase ended abruptly when the police car collided with another car at Lochend roundabout, before ploughing through a low garden wall on Marionville Avenue.
Dramatic photos taken of the crash show the badly damaged police car embedded in the wall, with bricks and rubble scattered across the ground.
A blue Honda Civic with a damaged front bumper is also visible, having collided with the side of the police car.
Emergency services were called to the scene, but Police Scotland said there were no life threatening injuries.
