This is what happened when the Evening News spent a night with police on the streets of Edinburgh
A scuffle breaks out between the bouncer and a patron in the smoking area of the Hive nightclub on Niddry Street. Moments later friends of a young motorcyclist try to take his keys off him before two police officers arrive to chase him on foot, suspecting the patron of being under the influence. Shortly past 4am and such trouble is common most nights as police struggle to patrol bars and clubs with late licences in the Capital during the festivals, the officers’ union has warned. “If we had enough resources, you wouldn’t have these problems because you’d have cops kicking about,” says Scottish Police Federation (SPF) east area committee chairman Andy Malcolm.
