Historical sex abuse claims at Edinburgh Academy

Police are investigating allegations of historical sexual abuse at one of Edinburgh's private schools.

It is understood that former Edinburgh Academy pupils have come forward with claims dating back to the early 1970s.

He added that the school adhered to the very highest standards of pupil care and child protection.
