Medical bicycle with drugs stolen

Police are urging witnesses to come forward

A paramedic's bike with bags containing medical drugs which was stolen from outside a church in Edinburgh is being sought by police.

The theft took place at about midday on Monday, from outside St George's West church in Shandwick Place.

Two black panniers containing liquid diazepam, cardiac drugs and other medicines were attached to the mountain bike, which is silver and black.

A police spokesman said: "We are anxious to recover the bike and drugs."

He added: "The drugs stolen include liquid diazepam and other powerful drugs, which should not be taken without a prescription.

"Anyone who has been offered these drugs or who has any information which could assist our enquiries, should contact police immediately."
