In pictures: Locals head outdoors to soak up the Edinburgh sunshine

On the day First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced the easing of lockdown restrictions, locals basked in the glorious sunshine at spots around Edinburgh.

The Capital has been enjoying a mini heatwave this week, and the sunshine continued on Thursday, with temperatures hitting highs of 23C (73.4F).

As a result, plenty of locals could be seen out and about soaking up the sunshine.
