There is a large police and fire service presence at the east end of Princes Street this afternoon where a man is sitting alone on the steps of General Register House.

Vehicles are on Leith Street and Princes Street with many officers in attendance to an incident which we understand is “concern for a person”.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Around 3pm on Monday, 1 April, 2024, police were called to Princes Street, Edinburgh, due to concern for a person.

“Emergency services remain at the scene and the public are asked to avoid the area.”
