A man has appeared in court charged with attempted murder following a collision which left another man in a critical condition in hospital.

The incident, in which the pedestrian in his fifties was hit by a car, happened at around 9.45pm on Sunday in Edinburgh's Grassmarket area.

He was taken to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary following the collision.

Caoimhin McSherry, of Edinburgh, faced a number of charges, including one of attempted murder, when he appeared at the city's sheriff court earlier.

He made no plea or declaration and was released on bail, the Crown office said.
