First pictures: Burnt out cars following Bonfire Night violence
Pictures have emerged showing burnt out shells of vehicles following a night on violence and anti social behaviour in parts of the Capital.
The areas of Pilton and Loganlea were particularly challenging for officers and on a number of occasions fireworks were set off at officers by youths.
Firefighters and police were attacked as they tackled fires and anti-social behaviour, with two firefighters and one officer injured in the incidents.
Police are appealing for information.
Chief Inspector Gill Geany at St Leonards Police Office said “The conduct of a number of youths this evening was outrageous and their misuse of fireworks was nothing short of dangerous.
“Serious injuries could have been caused by this behaviour and while no arrests have been made at this point we will work closely with everyone to ensure a thorough investigation is carried out to identify those responsible.
I would urge anyone who has any information which might help us in this investigation to contact us through the 101 number.”
