Dumfries and Galloway Council confirms school closures

Dumfries and Galloway Council has confirmed the closure of three schools in the region.

The Scottish government decided not to call in decisions to shut Mouswald and Drochduil primaries along with the Elmbank Centre in Dumfries.

The properties will now be declared surplus to requirements by the education department.

They will be passed to the council's property and architectural services to decide how to dispose of the sites.
