MIDLOTHIAN: Better industrial news for the district was announced this week. At Loanhead an initial 20 jobs will be created at a new vehicle depot. At Eskbank it is hoped some local people will be taken on when an Edinburgh firm relocates. At Dalkeith steps are being taken to retain Ferranti International’s presence in Midlothian. And the whole of Midlothian looks set to benefit from a £1 million initiative backed by the Royal Bank of Scotland to finance the creation of new businesses.
