Specialist bomb disposal experts were called in to carry out a controlled explosion earlier today after two antique fire extinguishers were discovered in a house in Trinity.
The extinguishers were discovered on Tuesday night in a house in Trinity Road.
The bomb disposal team took them to Cramond Beach this afternoon and disposed of them.
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Police in Edinburgh responded to an address in Trinity Road at around 8.40pm on Tuesday 13th August after two antique fire extinguishers with detonation charges were found within an attic space of an unoccupied house.
“The EOD will be attending on Wednesday 14th August to safely dispose of the items.”
