REPORTS of flashing lights on Arthur’s Seat sparked a four and a half hour search by emergency services amid fears someone had got stuck on the hill - but nothing could be found.

Police, fire, ambulance and park rangers were all involved in last night’s search around Piper’s Walk, which lasted from 6.40pm until 11.15pm.

A police spokesman said a further search would be made today in case anything more could be discovered in daylight.
