Thread: Edinburgh fiasco....

    Edinburgh fiasco....

    BBC News - Police search after gunfire reports in Newbridge

    why close the busiest road in Edinburgh at rush hour 12 hours after the event?!?!

    Because they can.

    Two quarries within a mile of Newbridge and it may have been blasting??

    more likely three chicken farms and someone saw a fox!!

    But they haven't exercised all their flashing lights and road closed lights for a couple of days. They also have to film it for reality TV.

    Seriously though, I would hope that there was good reason, and not just somebody heard a couple of bangs.

    Poachers, plenty working that area. Wonder if the roe are still in the field next to the roundabout.

    maybe it was my old (ex) volvo 940 passing by on way to airport! could easily be confused with gunshots! LOL

    I'm pretty certain the good people of Edinburgh have no idea what a firearm actually sounds like.

    I guess the police are so excited because it's right next to the airport.

    Since when did Police give a monkeys about reports of poaching with no evidence and 12 hours after the event?!
    put money on some RBS banker with close ties to the Police walking his dog that reported it!

    what on earth do they expect to find 12 hours later and why close the road?
    If it was poachers they could have gralloched it cooked and eaten it by now and still had time to make sausages from the entrails!!
