Campainers have urged sunworshippers to “respect” the rules of the Meadows after dozens of barbecue scorch marks were left during the heatwave.

The long-running debate about whether barbecues should be permitted in the park flared up again as revellers made the most of the sunny weather.

Heather Goodare, of Friends of the Meadows and Bruntsfield Links (Fombl), said there had been a “carcinogenic haze” across the Meadows as the city basked in 20C heat.
