School files stolen from Edinburgh City Council worker's home found

Dozens of school pupil files that were stolen from an Edinburgh City Council worker's home have been recovered.

The files related to pupils at Broughton High School, Granton Primary and Forthview Primary who have had contact with the Education Welfare Service.

The files were stolen during a burglary last month.

The council said the files were "predominantly" about school attendance.

An Edinburgh City Council spokeswoman said: "We recovered the files on Wednesday after we found the car that had been used in the robbery.

"The files do not appear to have been tampered with and we have sent a letter out to all the families to let them know this."
