The image has caused outrage amongst residents who say that incidents like this in the area are getting 'out of hand'.

One poster on the image said: "40 minutes and still no sign of police, absolutely shocking."

Another commented: "Getting way out of hand and ambulances are being targeted too."

Another person added: "Things are getting way out of hand now, something really needs to be done. When you say anything to them they say 'what are you going to do like'. Even if police get them, court is doing nothing."

A spokesperson for Police Scotland said: "Police in Edinburgh are investigating after a car was lifted and tipped onto its side in the Ferry Road Drive area.

"Officers were called at around 9.15pm on Wednesday, 6 November. The car was recovered and inquiries are ongoing to trace those involved.

"Anyone who has any information to identify those responsible, or relevant mobile phone or dash-cam footage, is asked to provide this to officers via 101 quoting incident number 4012 of 6 November, to assist the investigation."
