Fears have been raised that a much-loved 24-hour bakery may lose its late-night licence.

Storries Home Bakery, located at the foot of Leith Walk in Edinburgh, is regarded as a local institution. 

Bosses at the nearby Victoria Bar took to Facebook to call on locals to sign a petition to help keep the bakery "serving through the night".

They said that the loss of the license would be “a devastating blow” to locals, writing: “ A Leith institution needs your help! Unfortunately, our neighbours at Storries Bakery are under threat of losing their late-night licence.

“This would be a devasting blow for Leithers past and present, who have enjoyed a pie on the way home from a night out. 

"But more importantly, a vital meal for night workers with most other places closed. Let's keep this Leith staple serving through the night!”
