PIANO man Ben Treuhaft has quit the beach where he lives and is moving into a flat in Leith.

Ben (66) has been tormented by neds since being forced to move his tent from Portobello beach to the dunes at Cramond.

He said: “It’s been fun but drunks ruined it. There was no way of keeping them away.”

“I’m moving into a flat with the piano. It’s perfect but I don’t think the tent will fit in my living room.”

Ben set up camp at Portobello beach in March after his wife booted him out of their home.

But he was later told to move on by the council and set up camp at Cramond.
