Actor injured in incident outside Scottish Poetry Library after tribute event
An actor was allegedly stabbed in Edinburgh on Saturday after taking part in an event at the Scottish Poetry Library. Tam Dean Burn had been speaking at the event, a tribute to the late poet Tom Leonard, who died in December last year, and was injured outside the venue afterwards.

Mr Burn, aged 60, was reportedly attacked outside the Scottish Poetry Library in Crichton’s Close in Edinburgh’s Old Town shortly after the event ended at 3.30pm. Emergency services attended and guests were kept inside for about an hour. He is now said to be recovering at home, after being treated in hospital.
