A missing Edinburgh woman has been found safe and well in Gullane following a police search.

Kirsty Heggie, who is from the Leith area, was last seen near Holyrood Palace on Sunday morning, but friends and family had grown concerned when she failed to make contact thereafter.

The search widened to East Lothian when reports suggested she had been in Ormiston and Tranent on Monday morning.

Police confirmed on Tuesday morning that the 23-year-old had been traced to Gullane.

Officers have thanked the public for providing considerable assistance in the search.
