A network of CCTV cameras stretching across the Meadows and Bruntsfield Links is being considered for the first time following a spate of attacks.

Council chiefs are examining the costs of putting up permanent cameras through the public parks to crackdown on violence and antisocial behaviour.

More than 200 brighter lightbulbs have already been fitted while mobile CCTV cameras have been in use to bolster public confidence.
