Police probing a shooting outside an Edinburgh health club have issued a fresh appeal for information after two people were spotted on CCTV footage.

The images show the pair running from the area where a stolen car was found abandoned in West Bryson Road.

It was taken from a nearby CCTV camera at about 1920 BST on 20 October, half-an-hour after the shooting outside Bannatyne's Health Club.

Robert Kelbie, 27, was hurt in the attack at the Newcraighall gym.

Mr Kelbie was taken to hospital where he was treated for injuries, which were not life-threatening. He later discharged himself from hospital.

Lothian and Borders Police recovered a partially burnt-out Vauxhall Vectra in West Bryson Road the following day.

They now want to trace the two people seen on CCTV pair running into Harrison Lane, towards the Union Canal.

Det Ch Insp Richard Thomas, who is leading the investigation, said: "We believe that the Vauxhall Vectra was abandoned in West Bryson Road just minutes before the two people were shown on CCTV, and we are keen for any information that can assist us in tracing them.

"We know that the area was relatively busy with dog walkers and pedestrians, and it is likely that someone would have noticed two people in the area, either running towards the Union Canal, or on the towpath there.

"Anyone who was in the area at the time, who noticed the two people, should contact police immediately."

  • Bristol Academy extends reach overseas with first foreign students

    With the doors to its brand new £1million training centre officially open, one of the UK's leading apprentice training providers, Bristol based S&B Automotive Academy, is showcasing its world-class facilities by launching a series of foreign student exchanges for the first time in its 41-year history. To get a flavour of what life is like as an apprentice in the UK, the Academy hosted 16 apprentice engineers and bus drivers from the G9 Automotive College in Hamburg, Germany, as part of a Europe-wide vocational training initiative called the ‘Leonardo Programme’ with support from the European Social Fund. In a reciprocal arrangement, S&B will be sending nine apprentices to Germany during February 2012 so that they can get an appreciation of life in the automotive industry on the Continent. A further three German exchange groups are being planned for next year. Designed to assist the development of vocational skills and training across Europe, including work placements for trainees, the Leonardo Programme has a budget of €1.75bn, which is helping to encourage UK organisations to work with their counterparts abroad. In what is expected to be another challenging year for employers in the UK automotive sector, S&B’s Chief Executive, Jon Winter, claims that the exchange initiative will bring many benefits to the Academy and its apprentices: “In a world of global automotive brands, it’s important for our learners to understand the international context of the industry they have chosen to make their career. This new exchange programme will enable apprentices and Academy staff alike to achieve a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities within the automotive arena in Europe. With the Academy’s influence also extending to the USA and Asia, there’s every possibility that this initiative could move further afield in the future.” Continued Winter: “The need for skilled technicians across the world is on the increase and we actively encourage our apprentices to look at broader horizons during their training. Many of them have already learned the phrase ‘Vorsprung durch Gelehrtheit’, quite simply, ‘Advancement through learning.” In the 2010/11 academic year, S&B doubled the number of successful Apprenticeships over the previous year with some 350 apprentices graduating from the Academy. At the same time, achievement levels reached an all-time high with an overall success rate of 85%. For those learners on the Advanced Apprenticeship three-year programme, success rates were even higher, at over 98%.
