Barrier removal restores Edinburgh Castle view


Controversial hoardings that were blocking views of Edinburgh Castle have been removed, says BBC.

City of Edinburgh Council leader Adam McVey asked officers to take down the high black screens around Princes Street Gardens.

They had been installed for safety reasons to stop people gathering on Princes Street to watch concerts.

Now instead, a section of pavement will be closed while concerts are playing.

The gardens are playing host to the Summer Sessions series of concerts until August 19.
