A New Provost

Councillors have elected local councillor Robert Aldridge as the new Lord Provost of Edinburgh.

In response to his election, Robert said, "I am quite overwhelmed that the council unanimously chose me to be the Lord Provost on 26 May.

"Of course I will still continue to work on local issues and am happy to hear from anyone with complaints or suggestions.

"I hope that with 5 parties all with substantial representation on the council we can focus on the many things we agree on and work better together and listen to the views of residents. Thanks to everyone for your support."
