A police investigation is underway after four women were struck by their own car on Broomhouse Avenue at 9.40pm on Wednesday night.

The women got out of a Vauxhall Mokka to inspect the vehicle before it rolled back and struck them.

 Two of the women, aged 59 and 60, were taken to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary with serious injuries.
The remaining pair aged 58 and 81, were also taken to hospital with minor injuries.
