Scottish Borders Council has confirmed that safety checks are being carried out at schools across the region.

It follows the death of 12-year-old Keane Wallis-Bennet on Tuesday when an internal wall collapsed at Liberton High School in Edinburgh.

In the wake of the tragedy the Scottish Government urged education authorities to examine their properties.

A spokesperson for Scottish Borders Council said: “Our property maintenance department has been carrying out surveys of modesty walls throughout the council’s school estate to ensure there is no risk.”
