Five people are taking legal action over a Legionnaires' disease outbreak which has left two people dead.
The five, who are all understood to have contracted the disease, are seeking answers over what went wrong and have instructed law firm Irwin Mitchell.
Irwin Mitchell said they are receiving ongoing inquiries about the outbreak. Their clients include Terry Holleran, 55, who said he has instructed specialist illness lawyers at the firm to help him find out how the outbreak occurred and what can be done to prevent it from recurring.
The Scottish Health Secretary says there are 24 confirmed and 37 suspected cases of Legionnaires' disease. She expects this figure to rise.
Legionnaires' is a disease that strikes fear in people and its history shows it can be deadly.
The Scottish Health Secretary will today update MSPs on efforts to deal with a deadly outbreak of Legionnaires' disease in Edinburgh.
