Shocking clips show a security guard asleep during one of Edinburgh's largest sport events this weekend.

The G4S security guard was lying on the ground covered by his jacket and hat while he was meant to be manning the white car park at Easter Road while Hibs and Hearts were playing.

The security guard was in a deep sleep instead of doing his job.

Images show the man curled up and covering his face with his hat using his arm to lie his head on as he sleeps.

In the video clip, the security guard can be heard snoring deeply and not stirring as he is approached.

A spokesperson for Hibernian said: “We will be in touch with G4S to establish the facts but it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time."

Hibs and G4S have been approached for comment.
