A pram carrying a seven-month-old baby was knocked over in a hit-and-run collision.

The infant was taken to hospital following the incident in the Currie area of Edinburgh on Tuesday but he had not suffered any injuries.

His 28-year-old mother was pushing the pram while crossing at the roundabout on Riccarton Mains Road at the junction with Bryce Road at about 2pm when the collision with an "older-style'' white Ford Fiesta took place.

The pram was knocked over as a result, Police Scotland said.

The driver failed to stop and turned his vehicle around before travelling north towards the A71 Calder Road.

He is described as being white, in his early to mid twenties, with short dark hair.

Inspector Liz Duthie said: "It is extremely fortunate the young baby did not suffer injury as a result of this collision but his mother was left extremely distraught.

"We are eager to trace the motorist who did not stop and anyone with information that can help identify him is asked to contact police immediately.''
