Thomas Milligan

The family of Thomas Milligan, who died following an altercation in Lauder Road, Dalkeith in the early hours of Sunday morning have today paid tribute to him.

In a statement issued via Police Scotland, they said:

“Tam was a very much loved partner, father, grandfather and brother who will be sadly missed.

“He devoted his time to his work being a driving instructor and taxi driver. He loved socialising with his friends on a Sunday afternoon at the local pub and enjoyed listening to music.

“The family request to be left alone at this difficult time to come to terms with their loss”.
