Gorgie Road has re-opened after a broken-down HGV blocked the road for four hours this morning.

The lorry broke down between Ardmillan Junction and Gorgie Farm just before 8am, causing major disruption to rush-hour traffic.

It blocked both lanes of traffic, as the breakdown occurred while it was coming out of a building site.
