Have your say

One man has been charged and several other people were fined after police were called to a 
New Year’s disturbance at a social club.

The incident took place in the car park at Dalkeith and 
Woodburn Miners’ Club on January 1 just before 7pm.

A Lothian and Borders Police spokesman said: “A number of patrons were congregating in the car park area upon the arrival of officers, and three men were 
issued with fixed penalty notices for alleged breaches of the peace.

“In addition, a 43-year-old man was charged after allegedly resisting arrest. He will appear in court at a later date.”

In August last year, up to 60 drinkers were said to have been involved in a disturbance at the Dalkeith Miners’ Welfare Social Club, with police calling for back-up from every station in East Lothian and
