Decades of election tradition are set to come to an end this week when the massive task of counting all of Edinburgh’s votes is switched to a new venue.

Meadowbank sports centre has been the focus of activity on most election nights since it opened 45 years ago.

But when the polls close at 10pm on Thursday, ballot boxes from all over the Capital will be driven instead to the newly-extended Edinburgh International Conference Centre.
