POLICE are launching a festive crack down on seasonal disorder.
Operation Equinox will run in Midlothian until Thursday, January 6, and target crimes commonly reported over the period.
To address an increase in alcohol-related crimes, a number of policing operations will be carried out across the county.
High-visibility patrols will be deployed throughout Midlothian to monitor pubs, clubs and other licensed premises.
