Activist dies in fire

I was very concerned to see that after a fire at a protest camp in Midlothian a young man has died and a woman is seriously ill in hospital. The death is not being treated as suspicious.

The Bilston Glen camp is probably one of the last surviving road protest camps existing in the country. The camp issued this short statement;

"The people of Bilston Road protest site regret the loss of one of their friends, who has been a valued member of our community, and extend our deepest sorrow to his family and friends, who we would like to get in touch with as we have no way of contacting them. We would ask everyone to respect our grief."

My condolences to the protesters and family members of those concerned.
