A ban on advertising boards could be imposed on every street in the city centre, under proposals being considered by council chiefs.

The city council introduced a ban on business "A-boards" on the Royal Mile and Rose Street last summer in a bid to tidy up the appearance of the streets and reduce the risk of accidents. Now a full consultation is set to take place to look at whether the ban should be rolled out across all city centre streets.

The West End and Tollcross are among the areas where residents have said that a ban could be beneficial.
