Following a number of break-ins to shops and business in the Morningside/Bruntsfield corridor over in July and August the City Council is to fit two temporary CCTV cameras on Morningside Road.

Commenting, Mike Pringle MSP said

"The spate of break-ins affecting business premises on Morningside Road has obviously been a matter of grave concern for local proprietors.

"The good news is that Lothian and Borders Police are doing all they can to resolve the current problems and prevent further incidents. Meanwhile I have been liaising with local organisations, Morningside Community Council and the police to discuss what can be done to improve security in the area.

"For the time being temporary CCTV cameras have been installed by the City of Edinburgh Council, I fully support this move and will be campaigning for the cameras to be installed permanently in due course."
