Midlothian Council says it is doing all it can to help Newbyres Crescent residents move from their set-to-be-demolished homes.

With all 64 homes on the Gorebridge street due to be evacuated because of high levels of carbon dioxide, first discovered last September, a council spokesman said: “Work on finding people new homes is already well under way with some people likely to move out soon, while it may be some time before other people are able to leave the estate.

“Every resident has different needs and circumstances and we’ll work with them on an individual basis with housing officers and NHS staff on hand at the site office at 12A Gore Avenue to support them through this difficult time.”
