S'No Bother: Residents pull together

EDINBURGH residents are continuing to pull together after the worst snowfall for almost 50 years.

The Evening News launched its S'No Bother drive yesterday, which saw politicians, children and the army all helping out neighbours and comm- unities in clearing snow.

Between 15 and 20 parents turned up at Craiglockhart Primary at 7.45am yesterday to clear paths and the playground.

Neighbours in a Fairmilehead street cleared part of the street in the early hours of the morning to allow a pregnant woman to get out of her house when she went into labour.

The city's refuse collectors have been clearing snow outside sheltered housing complexes, as well as laying grit. They have also been removing snow from shopping areas. The city council provided the bin men with shovels and high-visibility jackets.
