Emergency response test for Edinburgh airport

Edinburgh Airport will be holding a planned emergency response drill, as required by the Civil Aviation Authority, later on Wednesday.

Travellers using the airport have been urged to stay calm and not be alarmed.

An explosion will be simulated at the airport's fuel farm to measure, among other things, how the emergency services respond.

BBC Scotland's Steven Godden reports.
