Schools across Scotland to be inspected for defects

Safety inspections will be carried out at schools across Scotland following the collapse of a wall at an Edinburgh primary, BBC Scotland has learned.

Four buildings had to be temporarily closed in the capital after defects were discovered in schools built by Miller Construction a decade ago.

The new surveys centre on schools built by the same company in Glasgow, Fife and Inverclyde.

The contractor said inspections were "a precautionary measure".
