A reward of up to £5000 is being offered for information about a suspected attempted murder in Edinburgh.

A 33-year-old man was found seriously injured in Wester Drylaw Drive at around 7.15pm on Friday, March 12, said Police Scotland.

Detectives are investigating a black vehicle which was found burnt-out near Craigleith Road, around a mile away, and is believed to have been used in the attack.

The force is continuing to appeal for witnesses.

Crimestoppers Scotland said it is offering up to £5000 for information which leads to a conviction.

Scotland national manager Angela Parker said in a statement: “This incident has, understandably, caused great distress in the local area, which is why we are appealing for people who may not feel comfortable speaking to the police directly to contact Crimestoppers anonymously.

“Everyone who contacts our charity stays 100% anonymous.

“We’ve been supporting people to speak up anonymously since we began in 1988 and have always kept our anonymity guarantee to everyone who trusts us with their crime information.”

Anyone with information can call anonymously on 0800 555 111 or go online at crimestoppers-uk.org.
