A stunned driver, who captured the dash-cam footage on Friday evening, told the Evening News: "I was on my way into work on Friday night and, when I was approaching the red light, suddenly the car shot past and straight through, with traffic just about to move off from Craigentinny Avenue North.

"There was a lot more police further up heading in the same direction. It was fortunate there wasn't a collision as there was a lot more traffic up at the next set of lights too."
