The man reviewing the circumstances surrounding the death of a 16-year-old boy stabbed at his Aberdeen school wants to speak to anyone with "relevant information".

Bailey Gwynne was stabbed by a fellow pupil at Cults Academy in October.

His killer, also 16, was jailed for nine years after being found guilty of culpable homicide.

The inquiry is being led by Andrew Lowe, who will be available to speak to people on Tuesday 21 June.

The review is looking at the relationship between the boys, as well as the educational, pastoral, health and social care services provided.

It was commissioned by Aberdeen City Council, the police and NHS Grampian after the schoolboy was fatally stabbed in a fight which started over a biscuit.

Mr Lowe is chairman of child and adult protection for Renfrewshire. The outcome of the review will be published in September.

In March, BBC Scotland revealed that concerns about the killer, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were voiced nine years ago when, as a primary pupil, he threw rocks at another child.

The incident resulted in the victim being treated for concussion.

Meeting slots are to be offered on a first come-first served basis.

Members of the public can email AndrewLowe@aberdeencity.gcsx.gov.uk by 10:00 on Monday with their name, phone number, address and a brief description of the nature of the information.
