Interviewed by the BBC this morning, Dr Duncan McCormick, chair of NHS Lothian's incident management team, confirmed that the evidence so far pointed towards cooling towers as being the source of outbreak.

'We have treated all cooling towers in south west Edinburgh, a total of 16,' he said. 'We are now extending the search to a few cooling towers in the West Edinburgh area,' he added.
