Don't let the Meadows go down the pan, users told

There were demands today for temporary toilets to be brought in to Edinburgh's biggest park during hot spells after residents reported people "urinating at every tree".

The Meadows is served by only one set of public toilets, on Middle Meadow Walk, at least a ten-minute walk away from some parts of the park.

Locals say the recent fine weather has led to a huge rise in the number of park users who simply head for the nearest tree instead, making the park a no-go area for families.

The call comes as city leaders are looking to close half of the city's toilets - and even the existing Meadows facilities are under review.
