Plans to introduce a £2 tourist tax in Edinburgh have won strong support in a public consultation.

Some Scottish councils, led by Edinburgh, have called for powers to set levies on tourist accommodation.

Figures show 85% of respondents to a City of Edinburgh Council survey backed the move, including more than half of accommodation providers.

The eight-week City of Edinburgh Council poll received more than 2,500 responses into the proposed Transient Visitor Levy (TVL) of either 2% or £2 per room per night.
