Oil Slick reported at Murrayfield

We have had many calls over the past few days about an oil slick appearing in the river around Murrayfield. SEPA are on the case and have traced the spill to the Moat Burn a small culverted tributary of the Water of Leith which joins just downstream of Ballgreen. Should you ever see pollution in this or any other river you can call SEPAs Pollution Hotline on 0800 80 70 60.
