Second man dies from legionnaires' disease
Severin CarrellA second man has died in the legionnaires disease outbreak in Edinburgh, after falling ill at an early stage of the outbreak earlier this month.
The man is thought to be in his 40s and from the Gorgie area of south west Edinburgh which has been worst affected by the outbreak. He had "significant pre-existing underlying health conditions", the Scottish government said.
Last week, a builder called Robert Air, 56, was the first fatality in what is now the second worst outbreak of legionnaires in the UK in recent decades. Nicola Sturgeon, the Scottish health secretary, had warned that further deaths were possible.
