Posted on 22/04/2014 by


A 61 year old man has been charged under the Explosives Substances Act after an incident in Muirhouse at the weekend.

Fidra Court was cordoned off by police officers on Friday night after a number of suspicious packages were reported. Bomb disposal experts were called to the scene and residents were evacuated until the early hours of Saturday morning.

Police have confirmed that a 61-year-old man has now been charged and he is expected to appear in court later.

Chief Inspector Sara Buchanan said: “We are still in the early stages of our inquiry and I’d like to thank the public for their patience, particularly those who were evacuated at Fidra Court, while we worked to establish the circumstances of this incident.”
