Two bodies found after chemical incident at Scotsman Hotel in Edinburgh


www.bbc.co.uk

The bodies of a man and a woman have been found at an Edinburgh hotel where emergency services are dealing with an ongoing chemical incident.

The bodies were found by staff at about 12:15 at the Scotsman Hotel on North Bridge.

Police Scotland said inquiries were at an early stage and the deaths were being treated as unexplained.

The road is down to one lane and an area around the hotel, including the Scotsman Steps, has been cordoned off.

Detectives say that they are not ruling out suicide and the reason for the full turnout is because they want to take full precautions at the moment.

Seems like a strange suicide if that was the case? Hopefully it was nothing more malicious

That's like the incident at the Opa Locka airport in Florida. A container of radioactive material was found near a plane being disassembled, so they rolled five alarms for the fire department. Then determined it was just DU, most likely from the aircraft being taken apart (I never followed up for sure). Better to send everyone, and then find out that it's nothing, or not necessary, than not roll enough, and be unprepared.

May have been a roving drug lab gone wrong-I imagine people do that here in the UK by now-like they do in US.
Who knows.

No one in England is stupid enough to take crystal meth. We just get people with skunk farms instead.

must have been a pretty nasty
chemical if it killed them while running away or walking

I wonder what were not being told, usually when they say its just an abundance of caution ...they are hiding something!! keep your ear to the ground on this one!

A guy in my local town got busted for attempting to produce meth a couple of years back-fortunatley he ordered chemicals from nigeria,which were fakes-but the cops got him anyway.
I wish it was the case that people in the UK didn't use meth,but knowing that the kids are into any chinese legal high chemicals,I doubt meth would be off their list of toxic crap to mess with.
Hope you are correct though-we don't need that crap to take off here-its mad enough already.

((((((((UPDATE))))))))

A Russian couples suicide via cyanide apparently -




Police have said the unexplained deaths followed a "chemical incident" and reports suggest that the man and woman took their own lives using cyanide. The couple, believed to be from Russia, left a note saying they had taken the poison, while hotel guests noticed a strong smell "like sewage" before the bodies were found. The discovery on the sixth floor prompted a response by the Scottish Fire and Rescue chemical incident team, with around 25 specialist firefighters sent to the scene. The sixth floor was evacuated and a large cordon put in place outside the hotel entrance in North Bridge, yards from the historic Royal Mile and a short distance from Princes Street, the city's main shopping thoroughfare.


postmortem examinations will be carried out.

I actually walked down North Bridge past the Scotsman Hotel last night at around 1am. I hadn't heard the news yet, but even then there were at least 2 ambulances, 4 police cars, 2 fire engines, and 2 SOC (Scene of Crime) vehicles.

Such an odd story. I can't wait to hear more about it.
