Ministers withhold Edinburgh trams funding
The Scottish government has confirmed it will withhold about £72m of funding if the Edinburgh trams project stops at Haymarket.
Last week councillors rejected plans to borrow an extra £230m to run the line into St Andrew Square.
Transport Scotland has sent a letter to the council's chief executive saying it will not now pay the final instalment of a £500m government grant.
