Police hunting 'stocky' man who is repeatedly pushing walkers into canal

Police in Edinburgh are hunting a man, thought to be aged around 60, who has been repeatedly pushing people into the Union Canal and they have appealed to the public for information

Police have launched a manhunt after reports of a stocky male "aged around 60" pushing people into an Edinburgh canal.

Incidents have been alleged of a "grey haired, balding man" shoving individuals into the water on the Union Canal.

Police in Edinburgh have now been patrolling the union canal recently following the claims and are on the lookout for the man, reported EdinburghLive.

The force has taken to social media to reassure people in the community that they have responded to the reports and are patrolling the area.

Uniformed officers have been focusing their investigation along the canal in the south west of Edinburgh.

A Twitter post from Edinburgh Police said they were particularly patrolling the Meggetland area of the canal, near Polwarth, with the man understood to have targeted various individuals

Love these stories. A few years back it was “youths” stalking the canal. Before that it was “a cross-dressing East European”. Now it’s this Granny Danger type. Only person I know who genuinely went in the canal was jaiked and swerved to avoid a dog one night.

^ Doesn't want to admit it was himself who was taking Renton for a walk, tripped over the lead and took a dip....

Not me! Though Renton did once fall out of a boat into a sea loch. Managed to put a nail through the fleshy bit next to my thumb today. Mrs (amateur florist) had just made a funeral wreath so said she was pleased that she could do my funeral flowers and get more of the life insurance in her pocket. Also said “now you know how Jesus felt”.

Bees are your friends, brother. Don't fear him and he won't fear you. Wasps however can f**k off. Noticed a few big b*****d wasps already this year. 

You'll notice one getting a lot closer if you keep up this hymenopteran hate  :angry:

Use this to see if your dad had any pensions he didn't know about. Chances are it's a company who trace dormant pensions and savings accounts but take a finder's fee.

Would he have been coming up for retirement around now?

No he would have been  83 last birthday 

I see.  Strange they haven't been in touch before now then.  Probably worth getting in touch in case there are some benefits payable.

Flipping channels there and I momentarily landed on BBC Parliament which was showing the Welsh assembly.

Brilliantly, the Welsh for minister is apparently "weinidog"

I'm dog sitting one of them this week. Arrived yesterday and I'm sick of it already.

A good mango sorbet tastes that lovely it makes my baws tingle. 

I have never had food that good. This is the only stuff that has ever had that effect on me

This surprises me, given your usual cheery demeanour on here.

I went for a pint today, I'm going out tomorrow night and going to work on Friday. I think I'll release it onto the main road on Thursday.

You're dog sitting a Welsh minister? Which one?

Eluned Morgan looks like she's dipping for the line in the 100m.
