In Trinity and Muirhouse, some pedestrians had fireworks thrown at them. Councillor Nick Gardner, who was at the Meadowbank event, said: “Lots of people were dressed up in super hero costumes and Meadowbank was in fine form as it really needs to be - everyone was saying it was even better than last year.”
