Firemen tackle Leadburn blaze

MORE than 40 firemen brought a blaze at a Midlothian building site under control.

Fire services were alerted to the incident at Leadburn by a mobile phone caller.

The passer-by spotted that the roof in the building at Roseview was well alight.

Five pumps from Penicuik, West Linton, Dalkeith, Liberton and Peebles attended, but the lack of water on the isolated site caused a problem for the emergency services.
