Pic Katielee Arrowsmith/Deadline..HEAVY rain laid siege to Scotland's most popular tourist attraction yesterday (thurs) forcing a road to be closed at Edinburgh Castle...Sizeable chunks from the volcanic rock seat that the historic barracks sits upon were dislodged by the wet weather and sent crashing to the ground below...Some were described as being around a foot long with one observer describing the largest as being around the size of a "loaf of bread"...No-one was injured but worried locals alerted police...The decision to close down the area for the safety of the public was then taken...A spokesman for Lothian and Borders Police confirmed: "The call came in around 11am. The road was closed and remains so. No one was injured.".
