Police officer suffers serious burns during fireworks
Four teenagers have been arrested in relation to incidents on Bonfire Night.
A police officer in Edinburgh suffered serious burns while responding to a call on Bonfire Night.
A number of emergency services were called to attend disturbances in Muirhouse and Craigentinny on Sunday.
The female officer was in Muirhouse when she was injured by a rogue firework.
This comes after firefighters were attacked at 11 separate call outs over the weekend, including responding to a car being set alight.
Four teenagers have been arrested in relation to these incidents.
Superintendent Mandy Paterson said: "My thoughts are with the officer who was injured last night.
"She has worked in Muirhouse for a number of years. Her injuries are fortunately not life threatening but are serious.
"As always, we had additional officers on duty to deal with any additional firework or bonfire-related incidents over the last week and sadly, the behaviour of a few individuals has undermined what should be an enjoyable time for our communities.
"As we now look to return these areas of the city to normality, I would urge anyone with information about the incidents in Muirhouse and Craigentinny to please come forward.
"Undoubtedly, local communities will know who is responsible and I urge them to share this with us to assist our investigations.
"Four people, aged between 14 and 17, have already been charged with offences in relation the incidents around Craigentinny.
"Any further details can be passed to officers at Drylaw and Craigmillar Police Stations by calling 101."
