More Midlothian bobbies for festive season

ADDITIONAL police officers are being drafted to help tackle incidents in Midlothian over the festive period.

Lothian and Borders Police has confirmed that it will deploy extra officers in the communities this weekend (December 22-23) as part of an ongoing effort to deal with violence and disorder.

Arrangements have been made for officers who normally fulfil departmental roles to be deployed in front-line roles to bolster the police response to incidents on one of the busiest weekends of the year.
