Asbestos in Highland Schools

Remember the controversy recently when Nairn Academy had to be shut following an asbestos square. In this week's Highland News Donald Wilson takes a look at the current situation across the Highlands.

'HIGHLAND Council doesn't know where asbestos is lurking in 123 of its schools.
And this week the local authority refused to reveal schools involved, despite repeated requests from the Highland News.
The shock figure is revealed in documents being issued by the council to firms for "asbestos management" in 197 schools across the region and has worried politicians and a health campaigner.'
More from the article here and the paper also devotes its leader column to the issue.
