CCTV cameras are still to be installed at one of the Capital’s most notorious sex attack black spots, despite campaigners being told they would be in place by the end of 2012.

Lothian MSP Sarah Boyack said the situation at Telfer Subway had to be “sorted out urgently” after it emerged cameras had still not been fitted, and council safety chiefs were unable to say when installation work would be finished.

Community safety leader Cammy Day had pledged last year that council staff would work “as a matter of urgency” to ensure the cameras were put in “before the end of the year”.

But despite a £50,000 grant being identified to fund the installation the cameras are still not in place.
