Edinburgh schools: 'Children shelter under that wall'

Parents say it is too difficult to comprehend what might have happened if a school wall which fell in strong winds had come down during school hours.

Graeme and Julia Mackle's son was due to go to Oxgangs Primary School on Friday, 29 January, when Storm Gertrude hit Edinburgh.

High winds caused structural damage to a wall where children usually shelter from bad weather.

Julia told BBC Scotland that "it's a horrible thought" to imagine what the outcome could have been if children had been at school at the time.
