Have your say

A 27-year-old woman has been taken to hospital with burns to her arms following a chip pan fire yesterday.

Firefighters were called to Morgan’s Court Edinburgh University accommodation in the Holyrood area at around 1.45pm.

The casualty was taken to ERI for treatment after attempting to carry the chip pan to the sink.

A fire service spokesman said: “We would advise members of the public if pans are on fire, do not try and lift them.”
