Around 80 people gathered on Tuesday evening for the Edinburgh North and Leith General Election hustings, organised by Leith Central Community Council. In the chair was Keith Anderson, CEO of the Port of Leith Housing Association.

The next day, Annandale Mosque hosted a second hustings, rescheduled because of the Manchester bombing. The meeting was chaired by imam Shaykh Hassan Rabbani, with about 50 people in attendance. Photos accompanying this report come from both meetings.
