Midlothian Snowsports Centre hit by thefts

Investigations are ongoing after equipment was stolen from the Midlothian Snowsports Centre.

Midlothian Council, which runs the cash-strapped ski centre at Hillend, has launched its own investigation and has since beefed up the security surrounding its hiring arrangements.

While visitor numbers at the centre doubled during the recent snowfall, thieves made off with some of the inflatable tubes, which are used for children’s ski parties.
