Stunt cyclist Danny MacAskill to perform

STUNT cyclist Danny MacAskill is to perform at the official launch of the new Saughton Skatepark.

The 24-year-old biking dare-devil, who shot to fame last year when more than 13 million people viewed his YouTube video, will showcase his skills at the new facility at 1pm on 8 May.

The skatepark unofficially opened last weekend.
