calls have been made for Penicuik to host a stage of the Tour de France.

List MSP Jim Hume has questioned the Culture Minister on staging parts of the world’s premier cycling event across Midlothian and East Lothian.

He is pressing the case for towns such as Penicuik and Haddington to be included in EventScotland’s bid.

And the idea has received backing from cyclists and Penicuik councillor Adam Montgomery.
