Cyclist goes under a bus

THERE have been fresh calls to upgrade a "horrific" busy roundabout after a cyclist was left seriously injured in a crash with a bus. The 35-year-old Chinese woman had to be freed from underneath the double-decker by firefighters using airbags and specialist stabilising equipment following the accident yesterday morning at Crewe Toll. Locals have told how the roundabout is so busy at peak times, it has become an accident waiting to happen. Inverleith councillor Lesley Hinds said: "The first time I moved to Edinburgh 30 years ago, I had an accident there in my car. It's such a dangerous roundabout.”
