A councillor has expressed his “astonishment” at the “crazy” decision to allow a hot dog stand to set up next to a busy cycle path, despite concerns about the potential “conflict” between cyclists and pedestrians.

Chas Booth, Green councillor for Leith, has criticised fellow councillors on the licensing sub-committee for failing to support recommendations that a request to set up the stand next to the cycle path on Middle Meadows Walk be rejected.
