Condolences for Midlothian

The Provost of Midlothian has tragically passed away at the age of 67 after a short illness.

Edinburgh’s Lord Provost, Frank Ross, said: “I was saddened to hear the news of Provost Montgomery’s passing. A long-standing elected member for more than 30 years and my counterpart in Midlothian, he was well-respected by many in local politics and across Scotland. On behalf of everyone in Edinburgh, our thoughts are with his family, friends and colleagues at this difficult time.”

Mr Adam Montgomery was Midlothian Council leader from 2003 and 2007, and serving Provost of the region. He represented Penicuik as a councillor for 31 years on both the Lothian Region and Midlothian councils.
