Edinburgh vandals trash traffic enforcement camera as police launch manhunt

Officers are appealing for information after a traffic enforcement camera was damaged in Edinburgh.

Police Scotland have launched an investigation to establish the full circumstances after the camera on the A90 Burnshot Flyover was damaged.

It is believed the incident happened 10.45pm on Sunday, May 19, and 8am on Monday.

Sergeant Karen Durham said: “Our enquiries to establish the full circumstances are ongoing and we are appealing to anyone who may have witnessed anything to come forward.

“Anyone with information that could assist us is asked to contact police on 101 quoting incident 0051 of 22 May, 2024.”

This comes after a string of incidents where bus lane cameras were found to have been vandalised in Edinburgh.

In February this year, we reported how cameras were targeted by criminals near the Gyle and in Roseburn as police launched an investigation into both incidents.

On March 8, the bus lane camera on Stenhouse Drive was vandalised down during the night. Located near the busy junction with Saughton Road, the majority of the post has been hacked off where several cameras were fixed to the top at the end of the bus lane.
