The Annual Taxi Trade Children’s Outing takes place tomorrow.

A number of roads will be closed/face traffic control measures ahead of the outing from 9am.

The event takes place every year, on the second Tuesday in June, with Edinburgh’s taxi drivers donating their time and money to take children for a day out at the seaside.

This year, the procession starts from Edinburgh Zoo heading to Eastfield with taxis decorated with a host of balloons and colourful designs.

Rolling road closures and traffic control will be in place along the route.
