Anger at dumped benches

Evening Times - - NEWS -

ED­IN­BURGH’S coun­cil leader has or­dered ur­gent ac­tion after me­mo­rial benches were moved and piled up to make way for the cap­i­tal’s Christ­mas mar­ket.

The benches were dumped at the edge of the mar­ket in East Princes Street Gar­dens.

They are un­der­stood to cost thou­sands of pounds and fam­i­lies do­nate them to the park in mem­ory of loved ones.

Christ­mas mar­ket op­er­a­tor Un­der­belly said they were han­dled re­spect­fully.
