Several roads will be closed in Edinburgh for events celebrating the coronation of King Charles.

King Charles and Queen Camilla will visit the Capital on Wednesday, July 5, for a series of events marking the coronation. There will be a national service of thanksgiving at St Giles' Cathedral, as well as two processions up and down the Royal Mile. It will be the first time that King Charles has visited Edinburgh since he was crowned earlier this year.
