I was trying to be optimistic, but looks like is game over.
I've been skating and shooting photos there for 20 years now, that's a hell of a long time. Without Bristo Square I wouldn't be where I am today. I wouldn't have been involved in skateboarding to the extent that i have been, whether it be working in Focus or starting North.
I've seen thousands of skaters come and go from there, a large majority of whom became my friends. Every city needs a Bristo Square, i hope we can find another.
It's a sad day for Edinburgh and a sad day for Scottish skateboarding.
