An ambulance was called to the National Museum of Scotland after a faulty fridge sparked an ammonia scare.
The incident took place in a staff area of the Chambers Street attraction at around 12.30pm yesterday.
The ambulance crew tended to two people suffering from asthma as a precautionary measure.
A spokesman for the museum said: “This was a minor incident in which a small fridge developed a leak and we called the emergency services.
“Visitors in the museum at that time were not affected.”
