The £200,000 sky blue Lamborghini Huracán was spotted by a traffic warden when it was left abandoned outside the court last week.

Its owner had left the supercar in a marked taxi rank outside the building on Chambers Street and the driver was soon handed a £30 parking penalty.

Recipients of a parking ticket in Edinburgh city centre have to pay a £30 fine which then doubles to £60 if not paid within 14 days.
