    Theft of drain covers, #Midlothian 

    Drain CoverPolice in Midlothian are investigating the theft of metal drain covers from locations across the county last week. 

    A total of 20 cast iron roadside covers were stolen from the Wisp (9 covers), Old Craighall Road, Millerhill (6), Myrtle Crescent in Bilston (3) Pentland Road in Loanhead (1) and Millerhill Road in Millerhill (1).

    The thefts took place from the early hours of Thursday, June 21 to the following afternoon (June 22).

    The cost of replacing the drain covers is estimated at around £8000, and police are appealing for any information that can lead to the recovery of the items. 

    A Lothian and Borders Police spokesman said: “We are appealing for any information that can help us identify whoever is responsible for these thefts.

    “Anyone who was in any of the areas concerned last Thursday and Friday, who noticed any suspicious roadside activity, should contact police.

    “Likewise, any dealers who have been offered the drain covers for sale, or anyone with any other information that can assist our enquiries, should also get in touch.”

    Anyone with any information should contact Lothian and Borders Police on 0131 311 3131, or Crimestoppers in confidence and complete anonymity on 0800 555 111.

    The #Olympictorchscotland journey through LBP in pictures 

    This slideshow requires JavaScript.

    The Olympic Torch wound it’s way through thousands of miles of Scottish highways and byways before finally arriving at the Lothian and Borders area. It was enthusiastically welcomed as a  once in a lifetime opportunity to see the Olympic Torch relay.

    Huge crowds turned out in lovely weather to cheer on the torchbearers from near and far. This selection of photos is compiled from our own , those from partner agencies and those sent in by the public, for which we thank you.

    Thanks to everyone in the LBP area for your patience, cooperation and support with this historic event.

      I had a wonderful time both days the torch was in Edinburgh. I enjoyed chatting with some of the police on duty, and loved the motorbike police waving and getting the public cheering. Thanks to everyone for helping to make both days enjoyable.
