Double trouble in Gorebridge

VITAL life-saving minutes could be lost by emergency services because of a mix up over road names, Gorebridge residents claim.

Anxious locals fear that police, fire and ambulance crews may not be directed to the correct address in the town due to confusion over two Stobhill Roads within a mile of each other.

Gorebridge Community Council was told last week that mixed messages were being created by calls to Stobhill Road in Gowkshill and Stobhill Road in Gorebridge.
