VIDEO: Impact of burglary on children disturbing, new research reveals

Burglars who target homes where children live should get tougher sentences says Victim Support

Urgent building reviews are to be carried out after a 12-year-old pupil died at school when a wall within a PE changing room collapsed.
The girl, named locally and on social media as Keane Wallis-Bennett, was pronounced dead at Liberton High School in Edinburgh shortly before 10am today. Her family have been informed.
Pupils were sent home early, while police and health and safety officials launched an inquiry.
Edinburgh City Council said the wall that collapsed was a “free standing modesty wall”, and all other such walls in its other schools are to be checked by building surveyors.
The school will not reopen this week and a full council survey of Liberton High will be completed before pupils return from the Easter holidays in three weeks.
