ROADS will be closed in East Lothian this weekend as Ironman 70.3 Edinburgh returns to the county.

The B1348 coast road between Prestonpans and Cockenzie will be closed on Saturday between 8am and 6pm when it plays host to Ironkids Scotland, a youth version of the triathlon, while time trials take place in the sea.

On Sunday the road will also close between 6.30am and 10.30am as the first leg of the triathlon, a 1.2-mile swim, takes place off Preston Links.

Then athletes jump on their bikes for a 56.5-mile loop around the county before arriving in Holyrood Park, Edinburgh, for the final leg.

Full details of road closures can be found here.

The bicycle route will see roads closed across the county from 6.30am on Sunday as the cyclists go through Longniddry, Aberlady, Gullane, Dirleton, Drem, Haddington, Pencaitland, Ormiston, East Saltoun, Gifford, Garvald, Humbie, Cousland, Whitecraig and Old Craighall.

All roads should be reopened by 1.30pm.

Organisers have asked people not to park on the cycle route on Sunday and urged pedestrians to take extra care when crossing the roads.
