Work on buildings destroyed by the fire in the old town area of Edinburgh has begun.

The blaze destroyed buildings in the Cowgate area and caused millions of pounds of damage. About 13 buildings in the World Heritage site were destroyed. Edinburgh City Council said clearance work will continue into the new year and should be completed by Easter. The cause of the fire is yet to be established.
