And finally… Police box-turned-cafe for sale in Edinburgh

A former police box in Edinburgh which is currently being operated as a crepe and coffee vendor has been put up for sale by its owners.

The kiosk, which is located on George Square, can even be moved to another location if required.

The kiosk is currently for sale with a guide price of £30,000 with Auction House Scotland who describe it as an “excellent opportunity to either take over the running of the business as staff are already in place, or run the kiosk on your own.”

Future businesses within it could include; a compact gin bar, sushi stop or soup station, the sellers added.

These former police boxes are unique to the city and their distinctive and compact designed was created by former city architect Ebenezer MacRae between 1931 and 1933.

Featuring the city crest and Saltire-patterned mouldings, they were designed to complement the classical architecture of the capital, The Scotsman reports.
