POLICE are investigating a suspicious blaze which saw thousands of pounds worth of damage to market stalls in a city centre square.
The blaze broke out in the early hours of Friday morning in Parliament Square and damaged a total of seven stalls.
Stallholders, who rely heavily on the profits generated during the Festival, estimate that more than £3500 worth of damage was caused.
Decorative artist, Jane ?Edgell, 52, who has run the After the Fall T-shirt stall in Parliament Square for the past seven years, lost more than £500 worth of stock.
She said: “I lost a lot of my hanging stock plus mannequins and other items. Each year I collect 60 per cent of my annual earnings during Festival week so this has hit me quite hard.
“Fringe staff rang me to say the stall had been set alight at 2.30am. I really couldn’t believe it. To be fair we have all been told not to leave anything in the stalls overnight but you don’t expect this to happen.
