A man has appeared in court charged with the murder of a "much-loved" father in Edinburgh.

Emergency services were called to a report of a man injured within a flat in the city's Primrose Street at around 2.30pm on Tuesday.

Local man Garry O'Neill was pronounced dead at the scene.

In a statement released through Police Scotland earlier this week, Mr O'Neill's family said: "He was a much-loved dad and we ask for privacy at this difficult time."
