The father of a man who was shot dead outside his Edinburgh home has been stabbed in the head, it was reported this morning.

David Barclay, whose son Martyn was killed in January outside a home in the Inch area of the city, was knifed in the head, back and stomach outside the Portobello Bar, in Portobello, earlier this month.

Despite being rushed to hospital he escaped serious injury in the attack.

It was claimed that his attacker has fled to Ireland.

Five people have been charged over the killing of Martyn Barclay, including his girlfriend Caroline Igoe, 31.

Lothian and Borders Police confirmed this morning that they are investigating the incident.
