A team of police officers have been searching the area of the Union Canal where a sex attacker pounced on a schoolgirl, who jumped into the water to escape.

Officers scoured the canal footpath at Ratho yesterday in a search for evidence.

A police spokeswoman appealed again for anyone who was travelling on the X12 Lothian Bus, which stopped in Ratho at around 5.30pm on Wednesday, to come forward.
