A spokesman for Police Scotland said: "Following a joint initial investigation by Police Scotland and the Health and Safety Executive into four deaths at the Pentland Care Home, a report has now been sent to the procurator fiscal for consideration.

"Additional inquiries being undertaken by the Care Inspectorate are ongoing."
