Edinburgh’s big wheel is not yet spinning for the summer after a routine inspection was postponed.

The festival attraction in Princes Street Gardens – said to be 4m taller than last year – was due to open to revellers on Monday.

But a spokesman for M&D’s said: “A routine inspection which was scheduled to take place before opening the Edinburgh Festival Wheel was delayed, resulting in us being unable to open the wheel as planned. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
