Police name woman who died in accident onboard Lothian bus

Police in Edinburgh can now confirm the identity of the woman who died after falling on a bus on Friday.

She has been named as May Porter, aged 86, from Edinburgh.

May sadly died on Saturday 10th June as a result of the injuries she sustained after falling on the number 35 Lothian bus which had to brake hard to avoid a car.

In a statement issued by Police Scotland, May’s family said: “May was a much loved wife, mother, nana and great nana to all the family and it breaks our hearts to have lost her in such awful circumstances. We will lovingly remember her for the joy and happiness that she brought to everyone on a daily basis.

“May was looking forward to several important upcoming family events including her granddaughter’s wedding and the birth of her newest great-grandchild.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank the all the NHS staff of the ERI’s Acute Medical Unit who supported May and the family during her short time in the hospital and also the police for their hard work and support they have given over the past few days.

“We ask that out privacy is respected whilst we grieve and continue to provide support to May’s devoted husband Bob who was also injured in the accident and is still currently in hospital.”
