Pest control experts have been sent into an East Lothian community centre and library after it became infested with mice.

Bleachingfield Centre, Dunbar, had to call for help after becoming overrun by the rodents.

East Lothian Council, which owns the centre, said it remains open while work is going on to tackle the problem.

However it is understood a number of groups who have booking at the centre, particularly those involving young children and babies, will be told to stay away.

A council spokesperson said: "Following the discovery of a mouse infestation at Bleachingfield Centre, Dunbar pest control measures have been put in place.

"The centre, including the library, remains open and all groups who have a booking are being advised directly."
